Single Leg Stance

Stand on one foot and stay steady. Your eyes and head should be facing forward with the shoulders and waist aligned. The knee should be pointing straight forward and not rocking inward. Your body weight should be distributed across the middle of your standing foot, while the foot arch is maintained and not flattening inward.

To make the exercises even harder, you can add slow squats or weights to the exercises. The exercises can also performed on increasing unstable surfaces, such as a folded up towel, foam, BOSU ball, rocker board, wobble board or vibration plate.

All of the exercises start on the ground and then progress to a more unstable surface.
