Basketball Core Buster
Sit on a basketball with your hands to your side on the ground. Using your core, gently lean back (about a foot) and lift your feet off the ground and try to keep yourself balanced. When you master that, try taking your hands off the ground, too. Hold for a count of 10 (or more if you can).
Read the full list at Outside for more challenges to your strength, balance and coordination. Can you toss a baseball hand-to-hand while hula hooping? Catch a frisbee while standing on one foot? Hold plank position with your hands on a basketball? Try these out and tell us how you did!
