Football players sometimes turn to unique methods to prepare for the season. Tamba Hali trains in jiujitsu, Jerry Rice would have his brother throw bricks at him to give his hands a vise-like grip, and Ravens running back Alex Collins practices Irish step dancing.

In a video from CBS, Collins explains his unique training method and how it helps him stay coordinated on the field. It’s pretty funny to see a muscular, jacked athlete pull off these slick moves.

Maybe Collins will inspire other players to take up dance in order to hone their footwork. It certainly can’t hurt.
