As we mentioned in our previous blog post, balance training is important for all kinds of daily activities and is important to work on, no matter your age or fitness level.
In that post, we shared some easy ways you can try balance training at home.
Here, our Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor, Miguel, will show you some balance progressions you can do with minimal equipment at the gym or at home.
Give them a try, and remember, they are a lot tougher than they look!
1. Skater Jumps – Hula Hoops
This skater jump variation will help you improve your balance and stability as you land on one leg. Keep in mind that proper landing is important for this movement.
2. Skater Jumps – Hurdle
This progression will challenge your balance and stability as you jump over the hurdle and land on one leg. You can change the height of the hurdle to modify the movement accordingly.
3. Knee Tap Plank
This plank variation will improve your core stability and strength, which will then transfer into better balance.
4. Single Leg Bicep Curls
This exercise will challenge your balance while reinforcing stability in a single leg stance.
5. Wall Ball Chest Throw – Single Leg
This progression is a great way to improve your balance along with upper body strength in a single leg stance.
