Body bal­ance with re­sis­tance band

Australian Health Today - - Aht Movement -

There are many yoga like poses that you can hold and count to im­prove co­or­di­na­tion and bal­ance. Stand feet apart then raise your right leg and rest on your in­ner left leg un­der­neath the knee. Us­ing the re­sis­tance band in both hands, stretch your arms to a com­fort­able po­si­tion and tilt your body slightly to your left, stretch­ing your arms slightly away from each other. Try hold­ing this pose for at least 10-15 sec­onds, or 30 sec­onds if you you feel sta­ble and brave. Re­peat with the other leg. Try 3-5 repi­ti­tions.

Re­mem­ber, you don’t need ex­pen­sive gym ma­chines, heavy weights or a gym mem­ber­ship to do re­sis­tance train­ing. Train­ing can be

done in your gar­den.
