That is a great link--thanks! It reminds me of how much the instructor focused on balance during that great bumps lesson I had in March... seriously, you get unbalanced, you fall. Period. I hadn't thought about specific exercises to increase my balance/better balance my muscles. Cool. :-)

(And I love specific sets of strength-training exercises which help with a sport. Runner's World Magazine has some good core routines, and I swear I feel taller when I run after doing those exercises.)

Thanks for the link. I am already imbalanced (and we won't talk mentally) with a bad knee so I'm going to keep focus on these.

The March/April 2009 issue of Ski Magazine's regular Fitness/Instruction/Gear section was all about balance and 'getting even'. The author was saying that often we don't look to what precipitated a fall (that could lead to an injury) and according to one sports scientist, Darcy Norman, the root is often muscle imbalances.

Ok my assymetrical teammates, here is the link for you, let's see how balanced or unbalanced we really are.

No jokes about my being mentally imbalanced... that, I assure you, is something entirely different.
