Hey Nick Ortego here. I’m gonna show you how to
use a chair for a balance
exercise. This is how you do it. Place the
chair just body weight over to one foot, lift
the other foot up tap your toe on the
top of the chair and back down. Just
do repetitions that way. Maybe start with
10 repetitions work up to 15, 20, 30 and
then switch be in the same number on
both sides. On the stance leg working the
balance. We’re working the hip abductors
in a stabilized way and a little bit of
strengthening in that leg. Got any
benefit from this drill this exercise do
