Exercises to Improve Your Balance

  • Core Exercises: These types of exercises engage all systems in the body used for balance as well as strengthen your midsection which can help keep you steady. 
  • One-Legged Exercises: These target and tone specific leg muscles so try and incorporate some single leg lunges, step ups, and squats into your workouts. 
  • Multi-positional Exercises: Anything that involves multiple motions in an exercise engages different parts of the system used to maintain coordination. For example, reaching your arm across your body to touch the floor while performing a series of lunges provides extra complexity. 
  • Hip and Glute Exercises: Exercises that target the muscles around the pelvis are great for assisting with balance because the pelvis is the body’s foundation.
