How To Lock Your Ankle 

Today we are learning how to lock your ankle.
It applies to just about every kicking technique in soccer. 


Key Points:

1 – Your Ankle can be locked with your toe in any direction. 

2 – Tighten the muscles around your ankle. 


Exercise to Practice:

Exercise 1 – Locked Ankle for Shooting

Point your toe down, squeeze the muscles around your ankle to make them tight and imagine you are trying to get your toe to wrap around and touch your calf. 

Then take 10 small swings with your ankle locked while balancing on your plant foot as if you were making a shooting motion. If needed and your balance is shaky put your hand on a wall for support. Do 10 reps, rest and repeat this 3 times. Then repeat this exercise on your opposite foot. 

Exercise 2 – Locked Ankle for Passing

Point your toe up, squeeze the muscles around your ankle tight and imagine you are trying to get your toe to touch your shin. 

Take 10 small swings with your ankle locked while balancing on your plant foot as if you were making a passing motion. Do 10 reps, rest and repeat this 3 times. Then repeat this exercise on your opposite foot.



What’s Wrong:

If you keep saying you can’t lock your ankle, but you know how to do it then that’s a bad habit. Watch our "How To Fix Bad Habits" video here. 


Bonus Tip:

Technique is everything! It doesn’t matter how big and strong you are if you don’t have good technique.
