If you have weak ankles that are prone to injury, try ankle inversion with a resistive band. It’s a great way to strengthen your ankles to help prevent injuries or to help get stronger after an injury.

To perform ankle inversion with a resistive band:

  1. With your legs out in front of you, cross the leg of the ankle to want to exercise over the other leg. Put the band around the ball of your foot with the knot on the outside, and anchor the other end around the other foot.

  2. Keeping the leg straight, and only moving at the ankle, pull outward away from the other foot, and control it back in.
