STT on YouTube – 2 Leg Balance Training

You will often see athletes working on their strength, speed, flexibility, and conditioning. Taking time to enhance your balance and proprioception is also a great way to help an athlete be successful throughout a long season. Try incorporating balance exercises when you are mentally and physically fresh. For example, during your warm up try standing on one foot and touching your toes without the opposite foot hitting the ground. It is also a great challenge as a finisher/team challenge as well. Try standing on one foot with the hip of the opposite leg at a right angle and hold that position for 30-60 seconds. If that is too easy, try closing your eyes.
