Ankle stability exercises

29th May 2010

Interesting article here with some exercises for ankle stability. This is an issue for me (martial arts stress my ankles) and the article gave me a couple of additional ideas:

Tree pose (yoga) – a bit harder than simply standing on one foot.
Juggle on one foot – probably a bit more advanced than catching a ball while standing on one foot and no partner needed.

There are some stretches here for the ankle that I don’t fully understand thanks to all the big words. And here we have a warning – do calf raises correctly or hurt your ankle.

    I’ve had difficulty with my yoga poses… I have flat feet and weak ankles. I’m hoping in time that yoga will help since I have to avoid too much impact on my feet. I’m going to check out the link you have for ankle stretches, I’ve not tried to do any before. Thanks.
