Rock’n-Balance (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
With people suffering over 300,000 broken hips every year in the U.S. alone, balance is one of the most overlooked components of fitness.
I came up with this exercise one fall day when I was training for ski season. I was bounding up a dry riverbed when I spotted a very pointy rock. I challenged myself to stand on the point for as long as I could. Later I added “foot scribing” exercises, such as spelling my name in huge loopy letters, and trying to balance with my eyes closed.
