Besides working the muscles in your arms and legs, here's a way to train the muscles in your torso too. Include this in your daily workout to improve posture and balance.
1 Balance on your hands and the balls of your feet in the push-up position. Make sure your knees are straight and your body is in one line. Pull in your abdominals toward your spine and don't allow your hips to sag.
2 Shift your weight onto one leg and slowly lift the other leg off the floor. Keep your shoulders and hips parallel to the floor and your body in a straight line. Hold your leg in this position for a few seconds, then lower it to the floor. Repeat on the other side.
