Bodybuilding.com - Three Dimensional Balance Training: No Equipment. No Fuss. No Cost! - Coach Sonnon

Here's some good balance exercises:

Frontal Thrust:
Begin with your planted foot turned outside to a 45 degree angle with your knee slightly bent. Project your other leg forward, locking your knee by pushing with your heel and pulling your toes back towards your shin. Sit back as much as possible without leaning. Flex your raised quad and planted glute in order to relax the hamstring of the raised leg. Exhale and grip the ground with your toes.

Lateral Thrust:
From the Front Thrust turn with your whole leg, leading with your pinky toe so that your raised leg rotates outward resting with your foot turned outward 45 degrees. Sit down without leaning and continue to rotate your leg outwards. Exhale and grip.
Dorsal Thrust:
Leading with your heel, rotate your leg inward and thrust your leg backwards until your foot rests behind you. Slowly dynamically resist your thrust backwards to a locked out position. Exhale and dig.

Frontal Thrust:
Bend your knee and slowly swing your leg under you (bent knee) and begin again with your Front Thrust. Repeat.
