This 113 page book is organized into three parts. Part one gives an overview of the importance of having good balance. The second part shows 6 different workout routines. The final part, which is the longest, covers the numerous exercises to help develop good body balance. At the present time my balance is so bad I do not use any of the props in this book; however, I do all the standing one-leg exercises using the wall for assistance. Progress has been slow but I do feel my balance is slowly improving.
If you are seeking to improve your balance this fantastic book is for you. For me it was of great value. I only wish I would have started these balance exercises when I first developed this medical problem.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).
Having said that, balance is a critical part of our training. This is especially true as we get older. And good balance makes us walk and move effortlessly and with grace.
This book is divided in parts, from beginner to more advanced - from using no props to using a Bosu, a fitness ball and other uneven surfaces. Everyone, says the author, should begin at the beginning. These are exercises done with no props. That doesn't mean they're easy! Believe me, they're not.
The book is fully illustrated and all the exercises are explained. If you can master only a handful of these exercises, you'll have a tight core and the lean muscles of a dancer. Not to mention a lot of strength and endurance.
