“B” is for Balance

Balance-based exercises are primarily used to help strengthen the stabilizer muscles that support a main muscle group.  Single leg stationary lunges forces you to hold your body in the proper alignment so the exercise is done correctly.  When you wobble, the outer thigh, inner thigh, calf and foot engages so you stay standing.  That’s why fighting to maintain your balance is so important.  Each second you fight to hold your balance makes your muscles stronger.  Hence, improving your balance and overall fitness.

So fight the wobble!!

Now go run!
