Best Balance Drills
While standing, leave one leg on the ground and balance. Then lift the other leg up, bend over and touch the floor in front of you. Keep only one foot on the floor through the entire set if you can. Focus on keeping your weight in line to avoid falling. Switch legs and repeat. Do 2 sets of 20 repetitions for each leg.
While balancing on one leg, throw a basketball or other large ball to a partner or against a wall. Catch the ball when it comes back.
Single Leg Hop
Keep one leg off the ground---either extended or tucked up---and jump on the other foot. There is no need to jump as high as you can, but try to jump at least 6 inches off the ground. Switch legs and repeat. Do 3 sets of 20 reps. This simple exercise helps to increase balance while also giving you a stronger core and leg muscles. Do this single leg hop 2 to 3 times a week for maximum benefits.
