Five of the most effective balance exercises for any sport

Always exercise responsibly and safely. Ideally under the guidance of a trained fitness and/or medical professional, who can match the exercise or sports regimen to your present level of fitness.

Balance is something we all need in everyday life – especially athletes. We take balance for granted when we run, jump, swing, or throw and, over time, our balance becomes an after thought.

But all of us, and athletes in particular, can never afford to lose the strong mind-muscle connection if they wish to remain healthy, and maintain performance levels while remaining injury-free. And that connection is preserved by performing balance-dedicated drills.

So, this video demonstrates the five key balance exercises to strengthen and improve the mind-muscle connection and overall mental performance that are sure to benefit everyone, irrespective of choice of sport.

The exercises are as follows:

  • Wobble Board Squats
  • Foam Pad Toe Touch
  • Single Leg Bounding
  • Single Leg Staggered Jumps
  • Single Leg Low Jumps
