10 Best Balance Exercises (Advanced) – Ask Doctor Jo
Once you’ve mastered basic balance exercises (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv__41ctwp8), you may be ready for advanced balance exercises. They are tougher, so have something to hold on to when you start. Buy a printable worksheet with these balance exercises here: https://www.askdoctorjo.com/purchase-advanced-balance-worksheet
The first exercises are with your eyes closed: Romberg stance with your eyes closed and head turns side to side, Romberg stance with your eyes closed and head movements up and down, tandem stance with your eyes closed, and Tandem stance with your eyes closed and head movements up and down. These are not only great for balance, but they are also great exercises for ankle, knee, and hip strengthening.
Next are: walking on your heels and walking on your toes. Again these are great for balance, and they are also great for ankle, knee, and hip strengthening.
Finally, you have: single leg stance, single leg stance with a twist, golfer’s lift, and golfer’s lift with a weight. These are also great for balance and strengthening.
