Looking for ankle fitness exercises for pronation of the foot.
Pronation Distortion Posture - Generally characterized by excessive lower extremity pronation (flat feet, valgus/knock knees) during static and/or dynamic movement patterns.
(NOTE: The order of the below stretches and exercises can/will vary from client to client; this is not an absolute blueprint!)
Pronation distortion syndrome is a common lower extremity postural distortion pattern that can lead to other movement dysfunction patterns and, eventually, injury. This distortion pattern can be identified by incorporating static and dynamic assessments of the foot and ankle complex. Following a systematic corrective exercise strategy once identified can help to improve functionality and movement quality, resulting in a lower risk of injury.

Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight, or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack.
If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional.
Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
