This is the exercise that I do. This exercise was recommended by my trainer at my gym, and it has helped my ankles tremendously since. I play soccer and hockey, and I used to constantly roll and sprain my ankles. The need to cut back and forth in soccer weakened my ankles over time, and in turn affected my play in hockey. This exercise has strengthened my ankles a lot, I strongly recommend this.
