Ankle & Shin Conditioning Capacity



  • Enhance the strength and capacity of the ankle eversion muscles


For eversion, flick your ankle outwards.

  • Sit in a comfortable position with your legs outstretched and ideally your foot hanging over the edge of a bench or couch

  • Tether a theraband or light resistance band around your foot so it is anchored to a stable object at a 45-degree angle to your body

  • Flick your ankle across against the resistance before returning to start position under control


  • 2–3 x 12–15 reps with theraband / mini-resistance band


  • Use a stiffer band that applies a higher level of resistance

  • Ask a partner to push against the inside or outside of your foot, and resist against it
