bluebillie Posted January 11, 2009 Report Share Posted January 11, 2009 I did a quick search for "Ankle" in this forum and don't see anything relating to my question, but I'm sure I've seen info on the boards about this before, so if anyone knows where in particular info on ankle articulation can be found, please let me know. Now, my question: I purchased a Wii Fit for my husband at Christmas, but have also been using it for general fun and aerobic exercise. Wii has a "sensor" that measures your stability when standing and doing exercises. While I excelled at many of the 2 footed flat balance tests (no doubt from all those years of ballet and body-awareness), I was surprised to see that on 1-footed exercises, such as Yoga "tree" position, and 2 footed releve positions, I wobbled terrifically. My left ankle has been weak due to ankle injuries over the years, but now I'm realizing that both my ankles are quite weak (I also have extremely small and narrow ankles, so it's always been an uphill battle). Do any of the mods have any recommendations for exercises (in addition to taking ballet class again) aimed at both ankle strength and articulation? I'll be working strictly in flat shoes. I'm at the point (no pun intended) now where I want to work cleanly in soft shoes before moving on to any pointe work. Quote Link to comment
