    I love how F&N went from a viable place for exercise and diet knowledge to a virtual high school locker room full of posers trying too hard to be funny. :rofl:

    Seriously this thread is a mess.

    Old school football agility drills are good. If you're trying to increase balance for a specific sport, then train for that sport focusing on your balance weaknesses. Practice what you are bad at!

    Oh... I mean

    Plyometrics :dunno:

    Like uglybob said, football drills for footwork would help. Ropes/dot drills/one legged box jumps or whatever they're called etc.

    There are alot of yoga and tai chi positions / movements that help with balance.

    Xela could probably help you find some good yoga positions for this.

    Also jump rope drills where you shift your weight are good for balance and coordination.
