Day 10: Balancing Act

Improve your posture and strengthen your core with balancing exercises. 

 
Version One
 
Step 1: Sit in your chair and place a report or a lightweight book on your head. 
 
Step 2: See how long you can keep it from falling off.
 
Version Two
 
Step 1: Stand and face a wall with your feet about a foot from the wall and shoulder-width apart. 
 
Step 2: Rest your hands lightly on the wall. (You can also use a countertop if you have one available.) 
 
Step 3: Lift your right foot and knee up, so you look like a flamingo standing on one foot. 
 
Step 4: Once you feel you have your balance, take your hands away from the wall and hold the position as long as you can.
 
Step 5: Repeat on the left foot.
