Good to know. I just sprained my MCL playing volleyball and have read that balance boards are good for strengthening one's knees. I can kill two birds with one stone.
Out of curiosity, has anyone tried stickhandling while balancing on a wobble board which has a ball on the bottom instead of a linear plank? I'm curious how insanely difficult it would be to stickhandle while on one of those things.
