The single leg balance is a good way to increase your balance awareness. It is a good exercise for elderly people or anyone who needs to improve their balance. For added challenge you can try it with your eyes closed or on a wobble board or other unstable surface. This exercise requires no equipment and can be done anywhere.


  • Stand with your feet under your hips, and then pick one leg up and balance with the other.
  • Keep both hips level and keep the knee of the balancing leg pointed ahead.
  • Keep the balancing ankle straight and tall, feeling the balance in this area.
