Balance Training with Karen Zareck

Karen Zareck club greenwood personal trainer

Balance training can be put into your workouts each time you train. It is an effective way to increase strength and stability.

This one-legged routine is a good place to start. The balance on one leg and aiming with your heel, kick out in the direction indicated. It doesn’t need to be a big kick! Just enough to challenge your balance:

  • One leg front kick
  • One leg back kick
  • One leg sidekick

Finish these three exercises on one leg then on the other.

Be sure to watch your form:
Engage your core – tighten up those tummy muscles!
Keep your upper body over your hips. Be sure you don’t sway or lean.
Begin with the weaker leg. Which leg do you find it harder to balance on?
If you need support use the wall or a chair Touch it only with your fingertips!

As you become more stable you can add the following to your routine

  • One leg circle – make a circle with your lifted leg
  • One leg parallel lift – try to raise your leg to parallel to the ground
  • One leg back lunge – step back into a lunge.

Do this sequence for three or four weeks before you add an unstable prop such as a balance pod or pillow.
