Balance Exercise

balance exercise


Balance training is great to strengthen and stabilize the muscles around the pelvis. Focus on keeping your pelvis straight, keep your hips in a straight line, parallel to the ground. Tighten abs and glutes to keep the hips in the right position. Start in strong standing position, feet hip-wide apart, knees slightly bent, strong abs, chest up, shoulders relaxed. Breathe in and activate abs and pelvic floor muscles on exhalation. Keep them strong an activated throughout the exercise. Lift one knee forward, hold pelvis horizontally all the time. Strive to 90 degrees in your hip and knee, but start with a smaller lift in the beginning. Press front leg backwards, push the foot back and down while stretching the leg (use your glutes), keep hips in line. Do knee lift again. Put foot down in the starting position and repeat with the other leg.


Hold one hand against a wall for support, or hold the stroller or a chair.


Vary by keeping the leg straight instead of bent when lifting.
