So you’ve got some reoccurring ankle issues? What to do? Take time off or push through? Depends on what you’re training for, of course. Below are my tips and some videos I found on how to get you back on your feet quicker than you’d expect to be.
Exercises for ankle strength & preventing injuries
When in doubt, cross train (get on a bike, in a pool, or on an elliptical). However we all know that just cross training won’t fix the problem. You’ve also go to strengthen the area in question. A few things you can do include:
- doing “prehab” exercises like heel raises
- working with therabands
- balancing tools (see left)
