Could someone direct me towards some good ankle workouts/stretches for ankle pain. I have a sharp pain in the left ankle which is the same exact pain I had throughout high school football and it's been good since then as I haven't been walking or running around like I used to when playing. It's gotta be due to my weight, but that's the point of my excercising which is going great and I don't wanna stop due to this pain which isn't severe or anything.
I'd rotate your foot in circles both ways to stretch it out before lifting.
Well I generally don't think of it much even though it hasn't been a problem in years I had it for many years in school and never had anything happen. AFAIK I never sprained any joint or really ever harmed myself in anyway ankle or otherwise(was always putting the hurt on other people haha). Anyways, at work I generally do a lot of brisk walking, sometimes carrying ladders and stuff, standing around. I first noticed it after running the other day... so far I've been mostly doing the elliptical machine and some brisk walking on the treadmill and adding in some running here and there. But the other day I decided to go for gold and try running my heart out(not literally of course). The next day is when I felt it, and it's not bad but I think having to work 10 hours directly after that run and it was a harsh day I could barely stand I was so worn out.
I found this and am gonna give it a shot.
Running beats the hell out of your feet and ankles bro, especially if yer running on pavement.
