How to strengthen Your Ankle with Tib Bar
Ever twisted your ankle just walking on a flat surface? Or maybe while doing a super-cool jump? I've been there. Multiple times. It's like my ankles had a mind of their own, always looking for an opportunity to play the twisty game. Those sprains sent me to physiotherapy more times than I'd like to admit. But guess what? I found a secret weapon against those sneaky sprains.
Why Ankles Play the Twisty Game
Before we dive into the solution, let's chat about why ankles love to do the twist. Our ankles are made up of bones, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. These parts need to be strong to support our entire body weight, especially when we're running, jumping, or even just walking. But if they're weak? Well, they're more likely to twist or sprain.
Calf and Tib Raises: Your Ankles’ BFFs
You know how superheroes have sidekicks? For our ankles, calf and tib raises are those trusty sidekicks. They're like the basic, but oh-so-important exercises that build a sturdy base for our ankles. Think of them as the foundation of a house. A strong foundation means a stable house.
Building Super Ankles
Once we've got our foundation down, it's time to turn our ankles into superheroes! How? By working on the ligaments, muscles, and tendons with weighted exercises. These help our ankles become strong and flexible. So even if our foot takes a wrong turn and tries to roll over, our super ankle can handle it and prevent a nasty sprain.
Easy-Peasy Ankle-Strengthening Routine
Alright, it's action time! Let’s set up a routine to transform those ankles. Here's what I do: Twice a week, I roll my ankles in circles, both ways. Sounds silly? Maybe, but it works! Then, I do some side-to-side exercises using my trusty Solo Tib Bar. All of this takes about 5-7 minutes. Yup, in less time than it takes to watch a short YouTube video, I'm working on ankle-proofing myself. And guess what? My "ankle twisty game" counter? It's been at zero for 9 whole months!
