What´s a good way to improve balance?

Balance Training

You may not feel you have time for specific balance training, but you still need good balance to get the most out of your other exercises. Here's something you can work in easily. Get about an 8-foot length of 2x4, lay it 4-in. side down on a floor or other flat surface, and practice walking back and forth on it. Do one foot in front of the other, forward, backward, sideways, progressing to lunging movements. Slower is harder.
