Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, these techniques will help you stay steady and progress toward more challenging exercises as your balance improves. Follow the below steps to unlock the key to maintaining perfect balance during your workouts.
1. Determine which leg is your dominant leg. Start each exercise with your nondominant side so that the other side will be easier.
2. Maintain good posture and form while you’re holding the position.
3. Focus your gaze on a fixed point straight ahead to maintain your balance.
4. If you have concerns with your balance in standing positions, try placing your feet a little bit farther apart.
5. Bend your knees slightly. This prevents your knees from hyperextending, and it makes you more stable.
6. Distribute your weight evenly between both feet. Notice if you tend to put more weight on one foot or if your weight shifts forward or backward.
7. As your balance improves, you can experiment by closing one eye at a time, gazing up at the ceiling, or trying different arm positions.
