Single Leg Balance

Standing exercises work all the leg and hip muscles simultaneously and often involve balance training too! Today's single leg balance starts in a mini squat with weight on the left leg/foot. Make a tiny tuck with the left side of your pelvis (think of tucking your sit bone toward the back of your thigh). Stretch your right leg in front of you and place right foot lightly on the floor. Stay planted on your left foot and lightly draw a semi circle on the floor with your right leg/foot. The key here is keeping your weight on the left while you gesture on the right. Try 6-10 repetitions and switch sides. Then repeat the sequence two more times. If there is any strain in your legs or back, take a break, do a few squatting motions, and try again.
