Walk like a toy solider extending your right leg and arm out straight in front of you. Keep your back straight and leg long to get a stretch in the back of your leg.

Biceps with balance
Using small hand weights, water bottles or cans of soup curl the ‘weights’ up while holding one leg up with the knee bent to 90 degrees.
Do 5 with the right leg up and 5 with the left leg up. Repeat twice.
Walk the line
Walk in a straight line with one foot directly in front of the other as you walk. (heels will touch the toes of the opposite foot as you walk).
Do it for 2 minutes
This is a balance exercise that is done on the floor. If you find it hard to get down to the floor do this exercise standing near a wall extending opposite arm and leg out and then switching.
