Wobble Board exercise - breaking at the ankle

Do you have a wobble board? You need one! They are relatively inexpensive but extremely useful! You will start to see your strength and balance improve immediately!


This is an intermediate exercise, and I would recommend this one if you are already en pointe, and working to increase your intrinsic muscle strength, or get a higher arch.



A few key notes:

  • absolutely do not do more than you can do correctly! It is really easy to overwork yourself while using a wobble board, just like it's easy to overwork yourself in your new pointe shoes. Watch for "chunking," shaking, or major wobbles in your ankle while doing this exercise.

  • I always recommend doing extra on your weaker foot. This just helps even out the strengthening.

  • It may take some time to figure out your ankle or foot positioning on the board - be patient with yourself!
