David Weck on Locomotion, Squatting More and the BOSU® BALL – Episode 260


If I were to tell you that using a BOSU® ball would help you squat more, would you believe me? Yes, I am talking about that half dome stability ball thing that sits in the corner at the globo gyms of the world.

Before you write off the BOSU® ball to the same category as the Shake Weight, you need to watch this episode. In this edition of Shrugged, we interview the inventor of the BOSU®, David Weck, and it turns out there is more to this tool than meets the eye. David has dedicated his career to understanding biomechanics and how to help athletes move better. While his tools and methods are certainly unique, they are also every effective.

In this episode we dive into all the experiments and practices David has explored and how he is helping professional athletes with his method. You’ll probably learn some things you have never heard before and you get to see Doug bitch slap him in the face. Multiple times.
