Ankle stability

Ankle sprain is a pain in the ass. I used to think my ankle was pretty tough. Then 1 fine day, while playing football barefeet, I stepped on someone’s boots while tackling him, and sprained my left ankle. #$@^#&*(&^!!!

The left ankle has never been the same. It felt loose, as if a nut or screw is loose. And there’s a snap on the lateral (outside) ligaments when I turn it inverse (inwards). I hate it!

Stronger, more stable ankle —> no more sprain!
1) 1 leg balancing (with weights).
2) 1 leg balancing on unstable surface (foam, mattress, sand, towel).
3) 1 leg balancing and catching—catch a ball, or bounce a ball off a wall and catching.
4) 1 leg calf raise with swinging dumbbell—swing dumbbell at random directions
