Beginning Single Leg Balance

1. Every exercise should begin with good posture to avoid injury.

2. Stand up and place your feet no wider than hip-width apart.

3. Keep your eyes trained on a spot directly in front of you. Push your chest out and roll your shoulders back, and let your arms hang loosely by your sides.

4. Suck in your tummy like you were drawing your belly button to your spine while squeezing the hips together. Avoid bending over or arching the back in any way.

Movement

3. Allow your weight to shift to the left leg. The left knee should be slightly bent and the left foot should be pointing straight ahead.

4. Maintaining good posture, slowly lift the right foot off the floor while bending the leg at the knee. Your right thigh should be parallel to the floor.

5. Hold this position for 3-5 seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat with the left leg.

Benefits

Single Leg Balance Benefits

Single-leg workouts increase our body's spatial awareness and balance. For people suffering from back pain, this is a viable option. Because the overall loads are often lower than with bilateral lifts, single-leg workouts allow you to target the legs with significantly less force on the spine.
