You can literally do this with your eyes closed, though it is not recommended. Thumbnail jokes are funny.
For real though. We can get stabilized with a wall or if you have too much art hanging on your walls simply close a door and use it work our chest, hips and buns.
Use what you got! Get in motion and make it a beautiful day.
Hey everybody. In my youth I was privy if not prone to twists, sprains and breaks of the ankle and foot. The cause being fearlessness and a late-bloomer Napoleon complex kamikaze sportsing* style. Blessed to be mobile from the foundation up I very much like to pay attention to and indeed give the ankles their due. Whether it be band work, balance or instability effort it has reaped dividends while I'm strolling in my SNKRS, wearing flips walking up the stairs or cleats wielding a 6 foot d-pole on the lacrosse field.
This balancing act may not be for beginners but getting clients on the ball of their foot as they contract muscles furthest away from their ankle has helped their strength and mobility as well as their confidence navigating the uneven terrain of daily life. Be about the bottom up and pay attention to the small things...lest they be your downfall.
Crank your Cankles, get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
Some of my clients like to up their balance game along with their leg strength. Using a glider we started messing with a single leg squat and hip circle. Opening up the hips, strengthening the glutes and getting in motion.
The move also comes in handy if you have to move your cat out of the way. Also it may give you the confidence to pet your pet with your foot. Stabilizing on one leg and getting a big ol' belly scratch in. I like practical exercises for everyday use!
Make it a beautiful day...
