Improve Your Balance Immediately with One Simple Tip

How to Improve Your Balance

Many of the runners I meet really struggle with poor balance. Despite the running gait cycle effectively being a series of hops from one leg to the other, it’s surprising how many runners struggle to balance on one leg!

Typically these runners find that any attempt at balance training results in the muscles of their deep calf region working overtime, rather than them feeling the effort in the other important stability muscles higher up the leg, such as the gluteal muscles.

Give it a try, and let me know how you get on!
