Barbie B Wow, it is harder than it sounds. Day 1 50 seconds right leg, 30 seconds left leg.
A simple way to improve your balance is to stand in the corner of the room (no, you haven't been naughty), close your eyes, cross your arms across your chest, then lift one leg.
To complete this challenge you have to do this on both your right leg and your left leg for 60 seconds each without falling over/putting that raised leg down. This HAS to be done concurrently/or very close to it. In other words, if you manage 1 minute on one leg one day, and another 1 minute on another leg another day, that is not good enough to complete the challenge. However, if you manage 1 minute on one leg then it takes three or four goes before you manage it on the other leg, but in the same session, then you can claim completion.
It's not as easy as it sounds & it's harder if you're not wearing any shoes.

“Sneaky .. I used to put this challenge into some of my classes and I practice it in Taekwon Do so I was prepared for this one :-) May try it to see how long I can do it for next time.”

Eric H Getting closer, still have eyes open, Left leg 45 seconds, Right leg 20 seconds, before loosing balance.
Karin D oh boy. It is getting worse! 8 seconds left, 6 seconds right. Amazing the difference between eyes open and eyes closed!
Joanna G 52 seconds on left 45 seconds on the right...for a little bit was pretty consistent at 36 seconds....
Amy H First try at this challenge: right leg 22 seconds. left leg 20 seconds. just about 40 seconds more to go! oh boy!
Eric H Still working on this.Can stand on one leg for minute, but eyes open, however my right side still has long ways to go just to balance for 1 minute.
Christina W Well, went through my list of challenges that have I've yet to accomplish. Let's just say I still have yet to complete this one! I can only manage 35 sec on my left leg and 47 sec on my right. Great challenge.
Eric H Attempted this, have a way to go. Even with eyes open I was unable to remain stable. Funny how something that seems so simple could take some work.
Kerry B Completed this on my 2nd attempt. Left leg 1.05 mins and right leg 1.02 mins. Happy. It's harder than you first think
Kerry B First attempt left leg 36 sec and right leg 42 sec. Harder than it looks. Had fun with the kids trying this as well

Andreia G I almost gave up on the left leg at 55 seconds but just kept it up. Ended up at 1 minute, 11 seconds for the left. Most important I completed this!
Maria B 1:30 right leg. I:03 left leg. This was a challenge I didn´t make the last time I worked on it. This was a "Retake". Now I could do it. First try on left leg 49 s but then I found the right focus. Thank you TS.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
