The Flamingo – A balance act on public transportation

balance act on public transportation
Exercise: The Flamingo
Situation: On public transportation
Exercises: Balance

The Flamingo is a balance exercise you can do if you find yourself standing on an unstable platform such as on a train, bus or in an elevator.

It couldn’t be more simple to do. Just lift one leg slightly and try to keep your balance without holding on to something. Public transportation are rarely known for providing a smooth ride so you are in for a challenge, but if you for some reason think it’s too easy then try to close your eyes while still standing on one leg.

You will get a great balance exercise and also strengthen the muscles on your lower legs.
