Brain Candy 33 Balance with Donato Campagnoli

Updated: Jan 11

Your balance is governed largely by your cerebellum, and yet, there are people whose cerebellum are not functioning even to 5% efficiency who have learned to balance themselves. Assuming yours is healthy, it’s a great idea to daily challenge your balance in some way. For older people it can be walking up and downstairs without looking at your feet. For some walking a narrow ledge, and balancing on one foot at a time can be enough.

In order to get a bit more bang out of my buck, or at least more efficiency from my time, I will be blogging about the most recent video posted on my YouTube channel. You can simply move over one page to find these videos, as my website has been configured to show you the most recent videos that I have posted.

The Conversation

A few weeks back, I had a great conversation with Donato Campagnoli of the Italian Tennis Federation. Italy is currently doing a fine job developing top players. We had an extended conversation about balance. You can see the full raw conversation, or you can see the edited clips. When I edited them, I took out the ‘ah, um and uhs’, along with the pauses, and times when either Donato or I threw in some throwaway phrases or repeated ourselves.
