    #1 There is no certain excercises on juggling, you can make up them by yourself. First if you're not good at this stuff try only easy moves such as juggling with your right knee. Then gradually enable your left knee join to the excercise. The next step could probably be juggling with your feet, later your might also use your neck, head, shoulders etc.
    #2 You're right. The reason why miniballs can improve your juggling skills is it's much harder to control a small one than a big size 5 ball. After that you'll feel how easy it is to juggle with a normal ball.

    I disagree with nvan. Practice with a size 5 until you can get 100 or so, and I'd also say to start with your feet as opposed to your thighs, because which do you use more in a game: feet or thighs?

    Just keep having a go at it. Its a hard skill to master especially when you try and use both feet. People always go on about people juggling and how they show off and stuff. But they forget the hours of practice that has gone into it so they can perform those skills.

    The best thing to do is just keep practicing. Start kicking the ball and having a bounce and then kicking the ball and having another bounce and so on. When you get more confidence try and get 2 touches in before it bounces. Just remember to keep your foot fairly relaxed.

    If you can already juggle a bit then just keep on trying to do as many kick ups as you can. Remember DONT USE YOUR HANDS! The worst thing people do when they are learning to juggle is as soon as the ball 'looks' like its going out of control they catch it. Dont use different parts of your body to keep it up and get it back under control.

    But really all you can do is practice practice. You can use different size balls. But until you get the hang of it. I'd stick to a size 5 when you get a bit better you can maybe move to a smaller ball. But get your confidence with a bigger ball first.

    Good luck and keep practicing!

    try not to let the ball spin
    that will make the next touch harder to control and is bad technique
    try to use your instep and good some good contact on the ball

    Actually, about putting spin on the ball, a lot of coaches teach you to give the ball backspin in order to keep the ball in your range of control.

    i have a question. my record i juggle easily with putting backspin. i can juggle with no spin but i have to like extend my foot as far down as possible and hit the ball with it parallel to the ground so i cant do that many in a row. my friend also juggles good but he naturall puts little spin on the ball and cant juggle with spin but his technique is the same as mine with spin i dont understand how this i spossible

    All good advise here. The only thing I would add is to make sure that when you juggle you try to stay in the same spot. If your running around it is a good indication that the juggling is a bit out of control. If you can keep your body in the same spot it is a lot easier to control.

    I know you've heard it before but just practice. Go out there and say you won't stop until you break your record every time. That's what I did. I did that for three weeks and my jggling record went from 30 something to in the 1000's.

    that is exactly what i did and my juggling improved dramatically. i didn't stop until i broke my record each day. although, it takes alot of self discipline, but even if you just beat your record by 1 or somethin, its still really good. im just warning ya.... it takes more than a week to get it down solid. good luck! :)

    Practice, practice, practice and when you are done practice some more!!

    its the best way to improve juggling the more often you do it the better you will become.

    There's lots of ways to learn. I recommend the #5 ball, use both feet if possible (not the knees), don't count, relax.

    I just watch a lot of Juggling Videos and Fallow what those guys do, I can do almost every move. Oh and its easier to juggle with your feet then with your knees. Oh and Make Sure your searing Tennis Shoes or Basket ball shoes.

    just to add something

    play a game with a reason to win such as not getting the ball shot at you

    Thats what we do at our practices, we get in a circle, and if you mess up jugglig or make a bad pass then you get an A, then an S, then the final S, after thta you have to get against a wall, and the ball isp laced about 18 yards out and everyone else in the circle gets to shoot at you.

    get in a circle and the 1st person to mess up sits in the middle. then start juggling again and after x amount of touches everyone can hit the person in the middle. if the guy in the middle catches it he leaves the circle, if someone messes up or misses the guy with their shot they go in the middle.

    I'm juggling with balls and clubs and i like contact juggling using acrylics...
    So,i hadn't tried before juggling with a soccer ball...man that's the easiest thing,cause the ball is big!!!So without any practice at all with a soccer ball...i'm able to perform lots of rolls over my body!
    So people start contact juggling!:D:D:D(I'm kidding!)

    Actually many people can do it for that long. When you learn the proper technique It just comes naturally and you can almost go on forever. If Im just doing one foot to the other I can go on for a long time but I always mess up when I try and do tricks.

    Hm, i just i cant comprehend that number, watching someone juggle 500 times, what is that like 30 minutes of straight juggling? I guess when i get better at juggling i can then realize that its easy.

    When you get the hang of it, 500-1000 is easy. I only drop the ball because it got so boring and then I lose my concentration.
