Improve Balance, Core Stability, and Joint Position Sense

The key to benefiting from this seemingly simple exercise is to stay on the balls of your feet throughout the entire movement, and to maintain core engagement. Staying on the balls of your feet is what will lead to improved balance and joint position sense.

If you aren't used to this type of movement, it's best to begin without any weight at all and simply get used to the feeling of bending forward with your upper body, using your hips as the primary hinge that you bend forward from while keeping your core engaged.

It's best to go slowly while maintaining steady breathing.
