Ankle Sprains and Strain Injuries – One Leg Balance with Dumbbell
Start by standing on one leg holding a 5-10 pound dumbbell. Maintain your balance on that leg while transferring the dumbbell between your hands in a circular direction around your body.
You should squeeze your glutes and activate your core muscles to maintain your balance. Pass the dumbbells in the opposite direction at the halfway mark while performing this exercise for 60 seconds in total. Perform three sets of 60 second repetitions.
This is a great exercise for both ankle and core stability especially after an ankle injury
