Internal Arts Balance Exercise

Good balance is crucial in any martial art, but especially the internal arts. Here is a balance exercise you can do at the gym. It works core muscles and forces every muscle in the legs to work at balancing and stabilizing yourself.

Stand on one leg on a Bosu ball and do the switching move from bagua. Turn the waist and change hand positions while balancing on one leg. If you begin to lose your balance, try to save it and don't fall off the Bosu ball. If your core muscles are strong, you'll be able to avoid falling. Switch legs after a minute or so.

My personal trainer introduced me to the Bosu ball and I've seen an improvement in balance as my leg and core muscles have grown stronger.
