Single Leg Balance

  • Stand with feet shoulders-width apart and pointing straight ahead.
  • Lift the right leg off the ground by raising the knee. Transfer weight to left leg, keeping left glute tight to stabilize the hips. Keep a slight bend in the left knee to place the balance on the muscles, not the bones. 
  • Hold for prescribed amount of time (usually 5-20 seconds). 
  • Switch legs and repeat.
