This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the humble single leg balance.
You should do this because– it helps strengthen the ankles and works on your overall stability and balance.
Makes your everyday life easier because– good balance will help prevent falls and strong ankles are needed for the gym, getting around and playing sport.
Form tips – Bend the working knee slightly, stand tall and feel your whole foot on the floor. If your balance is good, move the foot around that’s in the air, for more a challenge.
