Hi, I'm JJ Virgin, nutrition and fitness expert of jjvirgin.com. And, I'm here today to show you how to improve your balance. The bottom line if you don't use it you will lose it. So I'm going to give you a couple of things that are easy to do at home that you can do to challenge your balance so that it will get better. I'm sitting on a stability ball. You want to get one of these that's burst free by the way. That you can sit on or above a right angle. And what you are going to do is this can be a chair for you. This can be your workout bench because it's not stable. So it requires balance just to sit on. Then you can start some gentle hip circles. Again this is requiring balance and core just to do. And if you are doing some exercises or even working at our desk go ahead and lift the leg up and hold it. And lift the other leg up and hold it. So, I like to do if I'm doing bicep curls or I'm doing overhead presses I will do it with one leg lifted up. Then no hands go ahead and walk out. You'll have to use your core which is always going to be huge for helping your balance to keep you on the ball. And here's a very simple exercise to help your balance. I'm just going to shimmy back and forth, which requires my spine, my glutes, my core all to jump in and help keep me balanced. And then again no hands I'm going to walk back up. Use my abs to bring me back up on the ball. All of these help challenge my balance and you can continue to progressively make them harder by lifting up higher. Holding it longer. Walking out and making a bigger shimmy move. So continue to challenge your balance so that it will continue to improve no matter what age you are you don't have to lose it as long as you are using it. I'm JJ Virgin of jjvirgin.com. And thanks for watching.
