Stork balance

The stork balance is a simple single leg balance exercise, although various progressions can be added to make it more difficult. It improves balance and proprioception.


Teaching Points:

  • The athlete begins by standing on the injured leg only for 30 seconds.
  • Once this is accomplished the athlete closes their eyes to increase the difficulty.
  • The next step is to balance on an unstable surface such as a trampette, wobble cushion or half foam roller.
