Exercises to Improve Balance & Stability

Balance & Stability

When you’re young, falling is no big deal. Kids fall down all the time and we tell them to just get up and brush themselves off, but the same is not the case for older people.

As you age, the bones become more brittle, coordination and balance decline, and falls become not only more common, but also more dangerous. Additionally, vision declines and your ability to walk confidently without falling decreases.

That being said, if you’re careful and dedicated, it’s easy to improve your health and balance simply by performing the science-backed routine below. Following this routine consistently will go a long way in improving your strength, balance, and flexibility.

  • Walk in place warm up
  • Standing on one leg (Flamingo Stand)
  • Toe taps
  • Wall pushups
  • Hip flexor stretches
  • 4 sets of 30 seconds twice daily
