Are there any good balance exercises to gain better balance?

Really slow kicking.
There are also several really good 'gadgets.'
Standing on one of those balance board things and trying to kick is a good challenge.
I like these downhill ski machines that some people make.
I use one at my gym. It saves time because you get cardio at the same time.
Slacklining is also a very challenging balance activity.
Here is a link to some slackline equitpment and balance boards:

Finally, try yoga. There are some incredible balance training postures in yoga.

As far as closing your eyes, I don't think it's necessary.
It makes it harder because it decreases spatial awareness, but it won't necessarilly translate to better balance when your eyes are open.

hhmm thank you.

i believe that the excercise with the closed eyes actually does help. my father used to do this everyday a few minutes and after a 2 years he can stand for pretty long on one leg with his eyes closed.

i also just saw that this technique was also mentioned in other threads.

thanks for your advise!
