Begin in a standing position with your arms lifted up next to your ears.
Woodson YMCA Aspirus Branch personal trainer Christina Briggs demonstrates the pendulum exercise. It is a good one for balance and strength.
? Begin in a standing position with your arms lifted up next to your ears. Bend one leg at knee and keep weight on standing leg.
? Lean forward to straighten the back parallel to the floor with one leg pointing behind you and the arms remaining out above your head.
? Slowly drop until your hands touch the floor.
? Engage core muscles to lift torso back up and leg to starting position.
? Options are doing 10 to 20 repetitions, moving between both sides, or hold the second position for 30 seconds, up to one minute as you progress.
