Get outside and have an adventure!

Here is a great way to work on your advanced balance, leg strength and core tension.
You end up working your quads and stabilizers throughout your body.

  • Stand on balance disk on one leg with opposite arm extended above your head holding bar.
  • Squat with the weight of your body on your heel, while extending the opposite leg in front of you.
  • Attempt to go as low as possible. You may need to perform this next to the wall if you don't have the balance.
  • Repeat for a given time and perform 3-5 reps
This is a difficult version of a simple and effective exercise. You need to decide whether or not to use the balance disk or the additional weight.
