    Balance and Coordination workout

    Hi, for 1 set of this workout should I do the sequence 5 times on one side before switching to the other, or should I switch side every time I complete the sequence? Or is it up to me? Thanks!

    It looks to *me* like you do one side, switch to the other side, go thru, switch back to the first side, and so on until you have the 10 times for one set. That way, you are even-steven, both sides fatiguing equally.....?๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜‰

      kandy it is up to you. In trials we found that both approaches work and in terms of results, over the total number of sets, there is no advantage in choosing one over the other. It comes down to preference and skill level.

          How do you transition from the 3rd move to the 4th? I did this workout today for Spartan Trials day 4. My body went up backward, with the back leg as the standing leg. Or should I go forward instead when I get up from the lunge position (the bent leg as the standing one)?

            kandy I think it's the latter, given all the illustrations involve balancing on same side as the front foot during the lunges. It also keeps the engagement stacked on one side. I personally think it's easier to fluidly transition that way too.

              S.H. Artistry It's definitely a bit awkward when I moved back while standing up, and yes it's easier to go forward, which I tried later on. I felt like both legs contributed to the balance during the first 3 moves, though. Hopefully some of the admin can clarify it. TheRaven Damer

                kandy as S.H. Artistry said, the intended way to do it is for the foot that is in the back in 3rd move to now come to the front, without touching down and you raise your knee to waist height. That develops balance and coordination plus it is a very fluid way of doing it. I hope this has helped clarify it.

                  Damer Thanks!
                  And if I go from the 6th to the 1st do I simply lower the raised leg in the balance stand to where the back leg is in the 1st move?

                    Yes. That way you challenge fascia (which is the body's connective tissue), tendons, ligaments and core.
