Strong Ankles = Fast Running

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

Strong ankles have always been important to ball/agility/cutting sports.

(Rolling an ankle can put you out for weeks.)


As there is more and more research coming out on this we are learning how much a strong ankle/foot/toes are a major contributor to injury and injury prevention for runners. This then contributes to faster paces and stronger frame.


I am a big believe in the "bottom up" approach.



3 exercises to get started:


1) Heel raise to toe raise - master both legs then move to single legs

2) Pogo jumps - up & down, front to back, side to side - make it fun!

3) Single leg square jumps - hop from corner to corner - do it slow for a balance component or fast for explosive - either way it helps the plantar fascia!



Give it a try and let me know how you do!
