Roll Peroneal (Single Leg) Side Lying on Floor

Roll Peroneal (Single Leg) Side Lying on Floor

The Roll Peroneal (Single Leg) Side Lying on Floor is a dynamic exercise that targets the peroneal muscles, which are located on the outside of the lower leg. This exercise not only helps to strengthen the peroneals but also improves ankle stability and balance. It is a great exercise for athletes, runners, and anyone looking to improve their lower leg strength. To perform the Roll Peroneal (Single Leg) Side Lying on Floor, you will lie on your side with your bottom leg bent for support. Your top leg should be straight and extended out in front of you. Next, lift your straight leg off the floor, keeping it in line with your body. From here, imagine drawing circles with your foot, making sure to move from your ankle and not your hip. As you make these circles, focus on using your peroneal muscles to control the movement and maintain stability. You can start with small circles and gradually increase the size as you become more comfortable. Remember to perform the exercise on both sides to ensure balanced development. Start with a few reps on each side and gradually increase the number of sets and repetitions as your strength improves. Incorporating the Roll Peroneal (Single Leg) Side Lying on Floor into your workout routine can help prevent ankle injuries, improve lower leg strength, and enhance overall athleticism.


  • Start by lying on your side with your legs straight and your body in a straight line.
  • Place your top hand on the floor in front of you for support.
  • Bend your bottom knee slightly for stability.
  • Keeping your top leg straight, lift it toward the ceiling.
  • At the same time, roll onto the outside of your bottom foot, coming up onto your bottom knee and hand.
  • Continue rolling until you are resting on the outside of your bottom foot and your body is perpendicular to the floor.
  • Hold this position for a moment, then slowly roll back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions, then switch sides.
