To perform ankle plantar flexion with a resistive band:
1. Along with your legs out in front of you, place a roll slightly below your ankle so your heel can move freely. Place a resistive band across the ball of your foot.
2. Keeping your leg straight, push your foot down like you might be pushing on a peddle. Control the band slowly back up.
