My friends, if someone tells you that BALANCE isn’t important for healthy aging, don’t fall for it!😉 The old adage “Use it or lose it” couldn’t be more true for balance, especially as we get older.
And the fabulous news📰 is that we can IMPROVE it with consistent practice. BALANCE WORK is a great accompaniment🎹 to WEIGHT LOSS, and today we’re getting plenty of it! We’re “balancing” (seriously, I can’t help myself) cardio work with single-sided, single leg exercises for a routine that’s easy to follow and moderately paced.
Balance is an essential skill, and today I’m sharing my own journey of building👷 this skill (an unfortunate incident at my doctor’s👩🔬 office started it all) and offering tips on how you too can benefit by finding your big muscles💪 and asking them to work.
Are you new to balance work? Don’t let it scare😱 you! You can totally modify this routine and make it just right👌 for you.
