Try our balance challenge and see where you stand (pun intended). Try each move (1 added each week). If you can do it, move to the next. If not, keep working at it daily until you have it, then progress to the next challenge.
Exercises for Better Balance
How’s your balance? When it comes to our balance, we need to use it or lose it. Sometimes, it slips away without us even noticing. Keep your balance in check with the videos below.
Ski and Snowboard Month – Week Two
We are targeting the hips this week. Try out this external rotation stretch to open up the sides and back of the hips. Then, challenge your balance, core and hip strength with this dynamic version of a dipping bird. Also, check out our BONUS video from Koa Fit Trainer, Gerry Halverson, and head outdoors for some hip training.
Balance Month – Week Four
This is our last week of balance challenges. We are opening up the hips this week with our standing figure 4 stretch and by progressing our single leg balance to challenge all the motions of the hip.
Balance Month – Week Three
This week we are adding all the rotation, in the upper and lower body. If standing on one leg is hard for you, go back to week one and work on your single-leg balance first.
Balance Month – Week Two
This week we are adding movement to our balance and progressing our single leg balance.
Balance Month – Week One
This month we are focusing on our balance. While we will get added benefits to our balance (such as stretching our quad below), all of the movements this month will challenge and improve your balance.
