This exercise challenges your stability and single leg balance.
Stand on one leg with the knee slightly bent.
Keep your back straight with a slight hinge in the hip.
Keeping the knee in line with the hip, move your opposite foot out and tap to the side before bringing it back in.
Repeat this in multiple directions (forward, side, and back) before switching to the opposite side.
Start with 5 rounds per side and see how you feel!
Easy? Try it with a resistance band just above the knees, then progress to the ankles.
Hard? Try it without a band first. Hold onto a wall or chair for balance if needed.
