1) Squats (and one-legged squats)
2) Bridge (and one-legged bridge)
3) Dead lifts (and one-legged deadlifts... see a pattern?)
4) Side lunges
5) Pure Barre at home
Pure Barre at home and in the studio allows me to work on a total, or sections, of my body to compliment all the PT exercises I do. I have 3 full workout DVDs, and I have 2 DVDs that are broken into 10 minutes segments. In fact, the second disc arrived yesterday, so I can't wait to see what's different from the first one.
These aren't the only exercises, trust me. I do a series of clam shells, leg lifts while on my side, forward leg movements, bird-dog from yoga, and other balance techniques. My balance was awful, and still kind of is. The one-legged exercises focus on balance, and also lets me focus on that one side without the other side helping it cheat.
I've also gotten ideas from the elite athletes I follow on Instagram. I see their short videos of their exercises and think "I could do that!" My brain gets away from me at times. Sadly, no, not even close, but it's nice to see them wobble while doing balance exercises too.
