Research has proven topping school basketball and soccer players who added balance practicing your loved ones practice sprained their ankles less often than team individuals who didn't do balance training. Additionally to athletes make the most of balance training. A Canadian study recently discovered that within the handful of a couple of times of concentrating on a wobble board, teens who weren't people of teams decreased their possibility of injuries in activities.

(See "Make Your Balance" and "Balance-Training Tools" for many starter exercises.) For example, Love Hewitt performs exercises referred to as squats. Individuals exercises require her to balance while she lowers and raises herself.

Prepare and Goldenberg agree that decision concerning part of good balance might be a strong core. That area includes the stomach muscles (abs), back, sides, and bottom.

1) a websearch for backup of a hosted blog will show numerous solutions, also from Wordpress itself. Personally speaking I've never bothered with backing up my blog, as I consider more secure than my handmade copies. And if a total disaster strikes and my blog disappears forever, so be it. Personal opinion, not a recommendation you understand....

2) could not find any requirement to log in every X months/weeks to keep the account alive. What's more the official help says " accounts cannot be deleted. However, you can easily delete your blog".

3) my oldest post (May 2013) is still there....

4) Yes, you can have a static website, see in particular the Setting a "Home" Page section. Make sure you know what type of code is and isn't allowed (e.g. JavaScript is out):

1) Yes, it's very easy to do (the FAQ section of is excellent, but it's so easy to back-up your blog that you don't even need the FAQ section). I make a backup of my blogs now and then, it's very easy and it's done in a minute

2) So far no inactivity limit exists, this can Always change in the future but I don't think there's any such plans. So far no blogs have been taken down due to inactivity.

3) To my knowledge, only if you manually delete a blog entry yourself, an entry will be gone. I've never heard of any older posts being taken down.

4) Janusz already answered spot on!

In addition to answering your questions, let me maybe also emphasise that --especially for a free service-- the support team deserves a lot of praise. Whenever I emailed them with a question, I received a very clear, friendly response within a short timeframe. Few free services have such helpful staff.

Their FAQ section is also excellent, and the options available are very very good. This is a free service but you get everything you could possibly want from a host. Maybe except for more storage space, but if you embed images and videos this is never a problem. Blog entries and static pages themselves don't take any space of your allowed storage, so you can post unlimited number of writings, and if you insist on adding videos or images you can embed them to avoid consuming storage space within your account.

I would highly recommend this service to anyone wishing to build a simple yet nicely looking website and/or blog.
And no, not working for them or so, just a very satisfied user!
