Goal: Improve your balance through a rotational exercise
Starting Position: Place your feet together, bend at the hips so the back is flat and chest is parallel to the floor. Extend your arms straight out from the shoulders, lift the right foot off the floor and balance on your left foot. Keep the right foot off the floor during the entire exercise.
Step by Step Exercise: Begin the exercise by rotating your left arm downwards toward the left foot. At the same time rotate the right arm upward. Create the rotation in the torso of your body. Continue to rotate to a position where the left hand is directly above your left foot, and the right hand is pointing straight up. Return to the starting position and repeat for 10 repetitions. Repeat the exercise sequence balancing on your right foot.
Exercise Tip: Keep your chest parallel to the floor, and try to maintain your balance throughout the entire exercise.
