EASY HOME EXERCISES: Single-leg Balance more…

This exercise is great for working on stability/balance, and learning how to use the glutes and core muscles to balance. Hold each leg for 15-60 seconds, for 2-3 repetitions. To perform this exercise correctly:

1. Start with the body in a partial squat position, hands on the hips, back straight, and chest up.
2. Slowly lift one leg slightly off the floor, keeping it close to the other leg.
3. Make sure to keep the knee behind the toes, and glutes are back. Use the glutes for stabilization
4. If the glutes begin to burn, you are performing the exercise correctly
5. Repeat on the other leg
