Keep It Equal!

Have you ever thought about the amount of time you spend on one leg versus the other? Whether walking, running or standing, spending an equal amount of time on each leg is important to maintain muscle balance in both legs. Whether you realize it or not, we spend a great amount of time on a single leg throughout the day. Every time you take a step, your body needs to shift weight onto that leg for a brief moment in time. It is during this time that single leg stability needs to be adequate, otherwise a stumble or fall might occur. Practicing a single leg stance is a very effective tool at developing more stability. The beautiful thing about this exercise is that it can be performed anywhere!
