    At 26 I haven’t been stretching much, let alone exercise, since having my two kids. I wanted to get back to it, but not too fast and thankfully I found your videos. I did this one along with the “Morning Stretch Routine For Seniors” and benefited from both! Later on I’ll do your balance video and then the evening stretch routine before bed. Please continue to keep up this amazing work!

    I try to do as many of these different sets as I have time for in any one day…….in terms of overall lfitness. Usually get in about three of them.Cardiac,back and stretches seem to be 'up front' with balance and weights following behind.Have I got the priorities right?

    So glad I found your videos they have been a great help for me and a family member who has spine and hip issues. My physical therapist thought that your videos are great. I also love how you keep things slow, steady and easy for uncoordinated people like me. Thank you so much for taking the time to help people like me

    I've been using this regimen along with other Mike videos. Remember good head posture and tight stomach while doing the exercises. Two straight months of daily gentle exercising with Mike and I feel much better. After years of searching for an exercise routine that works for me I've finally found it in Mike's video series! I need not say more.

    Less than 5 minutes every day of doing this exercise is all it takes for improved balance. Why not do it when doing other tasks like watching TV or brushing your teeth (just make sure you do it safely). I'll see you again for more videos this week. Keep moving – Mike

    I did not realize how much I needed this! I still can’t do it entirely right. Not giving up.

    Great little workout, it is really helping my balance and core strength, after my hip replacement surgery, along with my hospital physio exercises of course :}

    Good to do while brushing one’s teeth – the 2 minute timer is perfect. This is actually about core strength .

    I do a bunch of exercises that have helped me remain fit during these lockdown days. But that didn't include anything for balance. Will add this to my routine.. and since you can do it while watching TV or listening to an audio Book, it is more likely to be done everyday, perhaps even multiple times. One small tip – though anyone with floor-level IQ can guess what you are doing with your raised leg, do consider shifting the text to a blank part of the screen. Not essential, but desirable.

    I have complained for years that my balance is really bad and is not only dangerous at 74 but destroying my obsession to get better..at golf. A pro told me its a skill like chipping you can get better..stop spending a fortune on clubs lessons and meds practice balance stupid…but you cannot fix stupid…thanks this is the ticket..5 minutes a day…even with chair I will fall.
