Pointe exercises

Using resistance bands! If you’re on pointe or working to get there this is a simple way to help strengthen your ankles and those ever important wing muscles so you won’t scycle.

You can either tie your theraband/resistance band to create a loop. I have a band already in a loop as you can see.

Wrap around the balls of your feet in a semi flexed position not resting your heels on the floor. Keep the band taught but not to your full potential.

Keeping flexed stretch your band or push your feet away from each other. Return to starting position. Do as many reps as you can handle.

Then alternate with one foot holding still and flexed and the other foot winging/moving away from the other foot. As many as you can handle 🙂

Good Luck!
