Single Leg Med Ball Knee Drive Reach – Balance/Upper Body Control

Give this move a try to improve your balance and upper back stability!

Be sure to give it a try mixed into your conditioning or on its own and let us know what you think.

Let’s get your whole body coordinating with this move! We will get your balance syncing up with your upper body stability and control. Grab a light ball or weight to begin with (5-10 lbs is typically plenty).

  • Start by standing on one leg, a slight bend in your knee and hips. Have your other knee touching the ball then quickly drive the ball overhead as kick your leg back. Focus initially on good back stability and balance, then gradually increase the speed and force. Repeat for 15 reps on one side, then go to the other side. This is an excellent move to do on it’s own as a warm-up or mix into a circuit with higher reps to get that heart working.

Move It Monday will feature a new movement, for all fitness levels, to help improve your dance performance and safety.
