More Important Than You'd Think

Want to play?  Try standing on one leg with your eyes closed.  How long could you do it?  Now try the other leg.  How long?  Was there a difference?  Could you do it comfortably for at least 10 seconds?


How about this one?  Close your eyes and march on the spot for thirty seconds.  Where did you end up, same spot or forward and turned?

When your balance and coordination are poor it erodes the foundation that your strength and endurance rely upon.  In other words, if you performed poorly on the balance tests it’s only a matter time before your strength and endurance also begin to fail.


Can you think of fun ways to practice your balance?
