#WednesdayWorkout – Single Leg Balance

A number of injuries can affect a person’s balance, leaving them feeling unsteady on their feet. The single leg stance exercise is an effective yet simple way to improve balance by working the stability of the hip with each leg individually.

 

 

1. Stand on a hard surface and slowly lift 1 leg off the ground balancing on 1 foot.

2. Hold for 10-15 seconds or as long as you can, and switch legs 

TIPS: 

Don’t grip the ground with your toes, keep the weight evenly distributed throughout your foot

Make sure you keep your hips level!

Pick a spot in front of you to focus on 

CHALLENGE: 

To make this harder try closing your eyes or lifting your leg higher in the air
