Beginning

Beginning Single Leg Balance Reach

Movement

Single Leg Balance Reach Movement

1. Reach forward, back, and across to the side with the leg that has the foot slightly off the ground.

2. As many times as you can, do this. The muscles in your stabilizing leg will work and burn. Spread your toes out or, if you're barefoot, try to grip the floor to improve your balance.

3. Rep the single leg balance reach with the equal number of reps on the other leg. This will prevent imbalances caused by putting more weight on one leg than the other.
