Working on Balance

Written by trainwithjeff on . Posted in General

So last month, I wrote about Balance vs. Equality.  If you want to read it or review it, click here.

This month and next month, I want to actually give you a few movements that you may practice and play with on your own to improve your balance.  I even made videos !  Why is balance so important?  Well I’m not getting any younger and neither are you !  We physically balance every day of our lives.  Walking is balancing as you move/ambulate from one foot to the other.  If you slow down nearly every action you do, you are balancing at some point during it, even if it’s only for a second.

So I thought it would be fun to share a 1 MINUTE video I made demonstrating a few ways to stand up and sit down without using your hands.  I probably had even more fun with my friend Barry as he taught me how to “spice” up the video ! 🙂  See if you can come up with your own ways!  There are no right or wrong answers.  I’d enjoy seeing anything you create!

3 Benefits from any of these movements:

  1. More strength
  2. More mobility
  3. More stability
  4. BONUS…. less fear of falling down.  (Why?  Because your body and brain now know it’s possible to get up)
  5. BONUS BONUS….LIVE LONGER!  One study showed being able to do this may indeed increase your life span !

Here’s the video:
