    This strengthens your calfs, not your ankles. For the most part your feet motions are completely controlled by the muscles in your lower legs via tendons attached to the bones in your feet.
    Either way, this will definitely help with harder landings. Thanks for the vid, bro!
    Goals for the summer (so far):
    x= on lock /=semi consistant o=inconsistant n=not landed
    [x] **** my goals

    I actually did know that, but it will help with a bunch of things.

    Improve your skating even!
