Try this exercise to improve your BALANCE

The video I’m sharing with you today includes a couple of variations of the Lateral Lunge exercise, which you likely know.

These variations will both improve your balance with the second variation a simple technique that you can use with any exercise to improve balance, proprioception and kinesthetic awareness.

Those last 2 words may be foreign so here’s what they mean:

Proprioception: how your brain knows the position your body is in

Kinesthetic Awareness: how your brain knows where your body is in space

Please let me know what you think after you give it a whirl.

Great exercise, thank you I am not a fighter but I am 66 and still surfing and i feel that any exercise they helps me maintain balance is a plus for me especially at this tie of my life. Loss of balance recovery while surfing is key for a more enjoyable day in the ocean. God bless and thanks again. Any other balance related exercises that you could pass on would be appreciated.

Great stuff Eric can’t wait to try it, we do a training method in boxing were you face your partner your partner spins x 10 as soon as he completed 10 spins you start light boxing his sense’s and balance is off for 10 to 15 to seconds this gives you the feeling of taking a big hit and you need to defend and move, the exercise you have show looks fantastic and I think would have a similar effect on your balance 🙂
