Your ankle can be twisted at any moment: while exercising or when wearing high heels… it is a very common incident! We would like to show you 4 exercises to strengthen your ankles that won’t take much of your time.
1 – Strengthen your heels
Stand up, with your feet hips-width. Without bending your knees, lift your heels as high as you can (standing on your toes), then bring your heels back on the flour. Repeat this movement 10 times in a row. For an intensive result, you can do it on a stair!
2 – Tone your knees
Standing up on your feet, take one large step. Keep your back straight, and then bend your back knee to the flour without touching it. In fact, the front knee flection should not be superior to 90°; while the back knee should not reach the toes when bending. Go back to the first position, change the leg, and repeat.
3 – Stretch your heels
Stand up on a stair with your heels in the void. Make sure to secure a hold. Without bending your knees, lower your heels under the level of the stair till you feel the stretch in your leg; stay in this position for 20 seconds.
4 – Muscle your ankles
Standing on one foot, left your arms above your head and then bring them back to your sides. Repeat this exercise by increasing the speed gradually.
Or, standing on one foot, join your hands together in front of you (palms opened). Rotate your upper body as much as you can.
