Fitness Trainer Tim McComsey demonstrates an exercise that’s fantastic for balance and all around effectiveness while the epitome of simplicity.
First, you’ll stand on your left leg and reach down with your right hand toward a cone or any other object that you’ll place on the ground a foot or two in front of you. Okay, not any object. We don’t suggest badgers or crocodiles. Use something small and inanimate, like a water bottle. Pick the cone up and stand up straight then slowly place the cone back. Repeat this exercise 10 times then switch to the other leg and perform 10 more reps to stay even and balanced. To increase difficulty, place the cone farther away from you.
This is more than a balance exercise, it’s also a strength exercise that does a great job of activating the glutes and abs.
