    At 73, i prefer the term "old man" to "elderly"!
    Very useful video. Thank you!

    I find it helps me balance better if I pick a spot straight ahead and focus on that.

    Bob n Brad hi from the UK. Exercises to help Achilles Tendopathy in runners please. X

    I have "incomplete paraplegia" on my right side (from a scuba diving accident 15 years ago) with major proprioception issues on that side. I think these exercises are great, but probably too challenging for me, especially since it involves bending the knee to extend the opposite leg (which I cannot do). I’m going to try this without the foam (which I’m sure makes it much harder) and see if I can manage any part of this. Thank you.

    Thank you so very much! I have had a stroke…fully recovered. Fell and had a reverse shoulder replacement. Have been in therapy now for balance. You fellows are terrific! Keep up the good work. You’re the best. Happy Holidays!

    Hi guys, any chance you could do a lawn bowls technique video. I’m recovering from a herniated disk and would love your thoughts!

  14. Aminah B on March 11, 2020 at 11:43 pm

    Could these exercise work for post concussion syndrome dizziness

  15. Lawrence on March 11, 2020 at 11:44 pm

    I’m 71 with two total knee replacements. Still practice Goju karate. I have balance issues if I think about my movements. I think subconsciously I don’t trust my store bought knees. Although they are almost as good as the ones Mom gave me. I just made the 4 shelf mat pads. I am adding this to my morning exercise regiment in the morning. Thanks guys.
