Getting older doesn’t mean we have to feel older. But as we grow older, the risks associated with falling over become greater. If not actively working on it, we start to lose physical strength, bone density, and our sense of balance deteriorates. And that is why balance is “use it or lose it” in principle. You have to work at it. Balance exercises will help with your overall sense of stability as well as strengthen certain areas of your body, including your abdominal and leg muscles, and increases your coordination.
In this quick 10-minute Balance workout, trainer Chris Freytag will take you through a series of stretches and strengthening exercises to improve and maintain balance. You’ll do things like single leg balancing, single leg lifts, single leg deadlifts, planks and several other things too. You’ll also be barefoot to feel the ground underneath.
Whether you are wanting to rehab an injured foot, ankle, knee or hip. Or whether you are just looking to test and improve balance, this is 10 minutes worth spending!
