Beginner Balance Exercises For Seniors (Dynamic) | 20-Minute Balance Exercise For Seniors

Hey Everyone,

In today’s workout, we go through a workout focused mainly on dynamic balance.

There are two types of ways we can train/test our balance:

1) Static Balance – The ability to balance whilst at rest. Eg standing still on the spot
2) Dynamic Balance – The ability to balance whilst moving. Eg walking or reaching forward.
You may be good staying balanced whilst at rest, but when moving it’s a different story.

Do this workout in a slow and controlled way. DO NOT rush through it we are working our balance and our coordination, there is no need.
