Over the years I’ve recorded a few little movement videos to share with my clients. Now I’m releasing them for all my blog readers! Today, I’m sharing a fun balance exercise that you should try this week.
Remember: It’s important that your doctor has cleared you for exercise. And I highly recommend you work with a certified trainer in person. Because there is no substitute for a trained professional who can see you moving in real time and help you improve you form.
WHY: This exercise works the stabilizer muscles in your legs, ankles and feet. These muscles need to be strong for you to run fast, run over uneven terrain, and decrease your risk of injury should you trip, swerve sideways or roll an ankle.
WHEN: Include in your warm-up before ANY workout or as part of a cool down routine.
HOW: Do 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps on each leg.
TOO EASY? Do it with your eyes closed.
Try this week and report back!
