Experts agree…Balance is the key to getting a total body workout! Your kinesthetic sense is your awareness of where you are in relationship to the space around you, and that starts to diminish as we age, so it’s important to practice dynamic balance throughout the week.
Stand in one spot and jump sideways to a point a few feet away, landing on only one foot. Hold for three seconds then repeat to the other side. Try jumping forward and backwards, repeating each position five times.
Dynamic balance is more functional, since it’s more relevant to how we move in everyday life. Imagine walking down the street and you trip, then catch yourself….this is dynamic balance.
In today’s 20-minute video, I’ll guide you through a series of dynamic balance exercises to recruit your stabilization muscles and activate your entire body.
Balance is a skill that can be practiced and improved! If you’re ready to take it up a notch, pick up one leg while standing on the Mini Balance Disc. This seemingly simple move tones your abs, legs, and buns.
No matter what your age, your body’s balance is your best ally for creating core stability, so it’s important to include it in your weekly workout!
