Why it made the cut: Ankle sprains are a basketball player's nightmare. Perform this ankle strengthening circuit with a large rubber band. After wrapping the band around his foot, Wade flexes his foot forward and back, then side to side. The circuit reduces your risk of a sprain. If one does occur, it will be less severe and you'll be able to recover faster. Watch Dwyane Wade perform the exercise above.

Sets/Reps: 2×30-100 each movement, each leg
