Balance Test for Core Stability

Here can see how well we’re able to utilise our core to contribute to stability above the hips.

  • What You'll Need:
  • ~ Phone set up for recording


~ Stand with feet fairly narrow, toes pointing forwards.

~ Let arms hang down by side of body.

~ Lift one foot off the ground so all your weight is on a single side.

~ Notice what happens; is there movement in your upper body while hips down seem fairly stable? Can you feel your core muscles activate?

~ Perform test 3 times on each side to get an average, and see if you're similarly good on right and left! 

~ Watch back recording and look for any compensations; mark down your findings using the checklist below.
