These are a great balance workout (in addition to helping you build your muscle strength). Sit in an armless chair. It’s imperative to keep you back straight and your shoulders relaxed. Lift your arms so they are parallel to the floor and slowly get up. Then slowly sit down. Repeat 10-15 times and don’t use your hands while standing up or sitting back down. You can hold on to the chair for support when you’re doing toe stands. Stand behind it and slow raise your tiptoes. Remember to do all of the movements slowly.
