One legged forefoot exercise – practice balance while brushing teeth

The One legged forefoot is a great exercise you can do in many places. Try it when brushing your teeth or just standing around waiting for your ride. You will both improve your balance as well as strengthen your feet and lower legs.

Nel is practising his balance and strengthens his feet while brushing his teeth.

Start by standing on one leg. When you feel comfortable with your balance and can stand on one leg for a longer period of time without losing your balance, it’s time to take this exercise to the next level. It’s time to go forefoot!

While standing on one leg, raise yourself up on your forefoot and keep standing on one leg. Try to maintain this position for a longer period of time. Aim for 60 seconds.

An even more advanced version is to stand on one leg on a balance board and if you really want to make it tricky you should also be carrying something heavy.
