Thank you for the helpful tips! I have really bad balance issues since having both knees replaced. The ear doctor explained when you have a major nerve interruption it affects your balancing. So does being hard of hearing. So I have both of those issues and I am going to be giving all these a shot. I can't even hardly balance in the shower. But thankfully I have those handicap bars in my shower that my husband put in for our son. emoticon

8 Exercises for Better Balance

By: Nancy Howard, SparkPeople Blogger


I was first introduced to balance exercises by my running coach when I developed a minor ankle injury a few years ago. However, before I even began using the balance board my coach had me do series of progressive balance exercises initially using only one-foot on solid ground, followed by doing these same exercises on a mat, than a rolled mat, followed by the BOSU trainer before moving up to the balance board. It took a solid six months for me to master the moves, but with these exercises I have been able to recruit the muscles in a different manner, therefore providing me with better ankle stabilization and muscle balance.

Below are links to balance exercises using various types of balance equipment. Feel free to modify the more advanced exercises by doing them first on solid ground, then standing on one leg, then on a mat, a rolled mat, etc until you have mastered the techniques where you can perform them a balance board. Even doing such exercises as a dumbbell curl standing on one leg or overhead shoulder press on one leg can do wonders in developing core strength as well as better proprioception and muscle balance.

Single Leg Standing on Balance Board

Balance Board Lunge

Wobble Board Squat and Sit2

Single Leg Standing Balance with Abduction

Beginner Squat on Board

Single Leg Standing Balance with Hip Flexion

Leg Standing Balance with Isometric Leg Lift

One Foot Balance with Dumbbells

Have you done exercises using any type of balance equipment? If not would these be exercises you can integrate into your workout routine?
