4 exercises to improve your balance
divIf you study dance or martial arts or any form of sport, then balance is key. Starting off, you may find your balance is all over the place, but there are several exercises you can do to improve it. This way, you will build up your core muscles, improve your leg strength and not fall over as much!br /br /1. strongStanding on one leg/strong - This is as simple as it sounds, but helps improve your balance. Stand and hold a chair or table a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_1bWDaNWCufc/TNlytzYHJtI/AAAAAAAAAo0/VOS8PTSDfl0/s1600/Excercising.jpg"img style="MARGIN: 12px 10px 10px 12px; WIDTH: 218px; FLOAT: left; HEIGHT: 240px; CURSOR: hand" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5537583348039755474" border="0" alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_1bWDaNWCufc/TNlytzYHJtI/AAAAAAAAAo0/VOS8PTSDfl0/s320/Excercising.jpg" //aand then stand on one leg. You can then alternate legs as you go. As your balance improves, you will no longer need to hold on to the chair or table and do it just standing up straight.br /br /2. strongWalk heel-to-toe/strong - You may have seen ballet dancers doing this as part of their warm-up. Simply walk by placing the heel of one foot in front of the toes of your other foot. Depending on your balance, this can be done using a chair or table to steady yourself.br /br /3. strongKnee bends/strong - Using a chair for balance, stand up and bend your knee slowly towards your chest. Hold in for a second and then lower your leg to the ground, before switching and raising your other knee. Try to do at least 10 bends with each leg. /divbr /divbr /4. strongLeg raises/strong - Again using a chair for balance, stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Then lift a leg out to the side by about 30cm. Hold it for several seconds, before returning it to position and then doing the same with the other leg. Repeat the exercise until you have done it 10 times with each leg.br /br /By doing these exercises regularly, you should begin to build up your balance.br /br /------Now on World Belly Dance - a href="http://www.worldbellydance.com/classes/Spain/"Belly dance in Spain/a and a href="http://www.worldbellydance.com/classes/Italy/"Belly Dance Italy/a. /divdiv class="blogger-post-footer"img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/29399419-8119892455431810728?l=www.worldbellydancer.org' alt='' //divimg src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/BellyDanceWorld/~4/F700Zknn8Eg" height="1" width="1"/ More...
