From hockey players to swimmers, today’s ankle band tips are important for all types of athletes!

As the head Strength and Conditioning coach at the University of Minnesota, Calvin Dietz is not only committed to helping his athletes grow stronger but also to preventing injury in his athletes.

With his years of experience as a Strength and Conditioning coach, Dietz knows that strong ankles are key to injury prevention.

Check out Dietz’s tips for an ankle band exercise that packs serious results:

Here’s a recap of Dietz’s tips for strong ankles:

  • Resist in both directions – Alternate resisting on both the left and right sides of your ankle. This complete resistance will help engage your full range of ankle motion.
  • Keep adding tension – Progressively add tension by tightening the resistance band periodically. Increasing tension is key to making your ankles bulletproof, as Dietz says.
  • Superset this exercise – Near the end of your workout, rotate this exercise into your remaining workout and treat it as a rest. Adding it to the end of your workout will prevent you from extending your workout.
