Focus on each of the key strategies for one week and practice a minimum of one subsystem each day and preferably several different subsystems during the day for crossing training benefits.

We must be able to maintain our balance in many different positions and situations such as: carrying items, climbing/ descending stairs, picking up items, slippery surfaces, standing up, uneven ground, and walking over items.

Balls like exercise balls and Swiss balls are great for developing better agility, flexibility, and stability. A Swiss ball is a great way to do a wide variety of exercise and fitness activities which can help you be fitter and stronger. Simply sitting on one while you watch, work or work out is beneficial. Using bands or hand weights while on a ball provides many additional benefits.
Bands and tubes are often referred to as resistance bands and offer big benefits because they allow you to do resistance training safely and simply.

Balance beams are a great way to develop better balance, stability, and strength. They can be found at parks and playgrounds.

You will be amazed and wowed by the extra benefits you receive while walking on a 4-inch wide balance beam.
Bending down and bending over to pick up items on the ground or to tie your shoes is a great way to improve your balance and stability. Lift with your hips and legs to avoid straining the back. When bending down use good ergonomics and form and develop proper techniques to build your stability and strength. Use the feet, hips, and knees as hinges when bending and lifting to avoid the tendency to round and strain the back. Caution… be careful and progress slowly when bending over to avoid becoming dizzy or lightheaded.
BOSU balls are an advanced form of equipment for fantastic fitness and fun. A BOSU ball (an acronym for Both Sides Utilized) is designed to help develop your core and stabilizer muscles for better agility, stability, and strength. It requires the coordination and firing of many stabilizer muscles to maintain balance when using a BOSU ball with exercises. You can use the BOSU ball by itself or with hand weights. When a BOSU ball and weights are combined you multiply the rewards and receive a big bounty of benefits for a low investment.
Bouncing a ball such as a basketball, golf ball, soccer ball or tennis ball is a great balance and coordination drill. Adding variety with balancing on one foot or high stepping while you bounce a ball is great for eye-hand coordination and stability. For move advanced workout bouncing a tennis ball as you walk is a great way to gain better balance.
