Strengthening – Single Leg Balance – Static hold for 30 seconds each leg

This exercise promotes increased proprioception in the joints which can lead to healthier joints, after all, running is a repeated loss and regain of balance so why shouldn’t we train it.

Take off your shoes and simply stand on one foot with a bend at the knee and hip. Keep your back in neutral and hold for thirty seconds. Try to keep your weight on the outside half of the sole of your foot (try not to let the arches of your feet collapse down towards the floor).

Make this exercise more difficult by closing your eyes.
