Best Exercises for Improving Coordination

There are many exercises that can target poor coordination. Try out some of these exercises on a regular basis and track your results! NOTE: Be careful and mindful of your safety at all times.

1. Balance on one leg

This is a common exercise when you think about balance. Its easy to do and requires no equipment. If you are afraid of falling, stand close enough to a stabilizing object so that you can catch yourself before you do fall.

2. Hopscotch

The ultimate old-school playground game. This is a great way to improve your balance. Grab some chalk and find some room on a driveway or footpath and test out your playground skills!

3. Heel-to-toe walk

This is exactly what it sounds like. Find a nice flat surface that you can walk on. Bonus if there is a straight line you can walk on. Place your dominant foot down first and then follow it with your next foot, putting your heel as close to your big toe on your dominant foot as possible without stepping on it. Proceed to walk in a straight line, turn, and repeat.

4. Juggling

Juggling is a great way to improve your hand-eye coordination. Just promise us you will start with something light and soft before you move on to the flaming swords!

5. Work on aiming

Using a bucket/ basket and a tennis ball or small ball, start 5 feet away from the bucket and try tossing the ball into it. Each time you get the ball into the bucket take a step back to see how far you can get it in from.
