Great for balance and muscle control of lower extremity.  Works muscles and balance receprors in integrated fashion.  Can begin with reaching foot tap for control and progress to no tap/touch to challege balance, eccentric control and return.  Can vary stance foot surface, do with one eye closed.  Put hands behind back or head to take away arm steady effect.  Can do singles or do multiple target reaches.  Have fun and be creative.  Don’t forget to think of muscle and joint reactions that are occurring and ask if that is what you are trying to achieve or teach.

Get Strong!  Stay Strong!
