A Great Exercise for Hip Stability and Balance


At the start of August I released a blog article and video about the importance of strength exercises. As I was asked to demonstrate some of these exercises, on Monday I showed you how to do push ups and on Wednesday I showed you how to do a plank. Today I show you how to do one of the best strength exercises you can do for hip stability and balance – the squat. They are also great for your big leg muscles; the hamstrings and quads.

I hope you found that demonstration helpful. Remember — if you’re just starting, you should do 5 or 6 squats and gradually increase to 10 in 30 seconds and try to build it from there. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will respond to everyone.

Until the next time remember my motto:

You don’t have to be fit and healthy to start, but you do have to start to be fit and healthy.

    When doing a squat , Do you have to watch your knees to make sure they don’t go pass your toes?
