Step ups and downs

Many of the exercises can be made more difficult by changing the surface, especially as it becomes more unstable. You can also hold a 5-10 pound weight during the exercises to further challenge the stabilizer muscles.

Step up on and down from a step or boxes. Increase the height of a box or make it a small jump. One of my favorites is to step as slowly as possible off the vibration platform, really focusing on trying not to touch the ground until it is absolutely necessary. Likewise, you can practice stepping up on the vibration unit backwards, trying to go as slowly as possible off the ground.
