Resistance Band Calf And Ankle Stretch

from Jodi Scott Trevizo

From sitting, place a resistance band on the ball of the foot, grabbing both ends of the band. If you have a loop band, double it up and hold both ends. Flex your foot, trying to bring your toes back towards you, and, pressing through the band, point your toes away from you. Repeat this motion numerous times, then switch to the other leg.
Why it works
This not only strengthens your ankles, but it builds the anterior tibialis muscles (the muscle that sits on top of the shin).
