Old Man Balance Test

 Here’s a fun test that you can do to challenge your balance and coordination.  It’s called the “Old Man Balance Test” and was created by coach Chris Henshaw as a fun little competition with his kids.

You start by putting your socks and shoes on the floor in front of you.  Standing on one leg you reach down and grab your sock and you put it on without placing your foot down.  Then you reach down and grab your shoe and put your shoe on and tie it without touching the floor.   You then switch and do it on the other side.   

This is a great two minute balance practice and you don't have to be an old man to try it. This can help identify flexibility and balance issues regardless of your age!
