Step back

Step back exercises can be used as late stage ankle exercises to increase push-off strength, but will also work the hip and bum muscles.


Teaching Points:

  • Start standing on a small step.
  • Take one leg backwards, touch the foot on the floor and push off with the forefoot to move it back onto the step.
  • Alternate legs.
  • This can be increased in difficulty by performing on a higher step or at a faster speed.
