Resistance Band Inversion

Inversion (also known as pronation) is the movement of turning the foot so that the sole faces inwards. A resistance band is great for this exercise and other ankle exercises.

Teaching Points:

  • A resistance band is wrapped around the forefoot and anchored to a table leg or held by a partner.
  • This exercises works the ankle inverter muscles as the athlete turns the foot in against the resistance of the band.
  • Start with the foot fully everted (sole turned outwards) and the band just taught so that resistance is felt throughout the whole movement.
