    That is a good thing. The smaller your joints, the bigger your muscle bellies look.

    Seems if you gobble up enough food, especially protein and do heavy squats, calf raises, leg curls and some leg presses, you should be able to increase the overall size of your legs, ankles included.
    The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US, Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech: "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."

    The closest you will get to increasing ankle size is the seated calf raise which works the lower calf. As to how far down any growth will go, well, that's all genetics.

    Through calf and leg training, you may be able to thicken some tendons in there, but the effect will be minimal.

    My gym just go one of the freemotion calf raise machinces and WOW. You can really feel it working all of the stabilizer muscles in the sides of your calfs and ankles. The pedals pivot forward and sidways so you are forced to use all of your stabilizer muscles where as a standing or seated calf raise you have a solid platform to push off of. If you dont stabilize your feet your ankle will bend and you foot will slip off. I feel this thing working muscles I didnt even know I had LOL. I dont know if you have one at your gym but if you do then try it out.

    Try playing hockey or just ice skating. While I don't know if it will make your ankles "bigger", it will definitely strengthen them.

    If you really want to make your ankles bigger, have one of your friends take a bat to the back of your ankles. You are guaranteed to gain at least an inch. This must be done at least once a week to keep your size.

    First of all...you think too much. I'm sure nobody notices your ankles.

    Secondly for bodybuilding purposes it is much better to have very small ankles and wrists. It definately creates the illusion of larger calves/arms.

    My ankles are "normal" or average in size and my calves are around 16 1/2. Another guy at our gym has tiny tiny ankles also with 16 1/2 calves. Although my calves have decent size, his look HUGE in comparison.

    I understand

    Yeah dude I've been hardcore working calves and legs for nearly two years and I still get called "captain skips'' and similar things, you can't increase your ankle size much it's what you're born with but if you increase calve size and vascularity you should get better feedback for it...

    ankles are like wrists, mostly bone and tendon, not much muscle there to develop

    Thanks for the tips

    Btw no **** about the insurgent socialist agenda. Has been slowly infiltrating our history, right? Public parks, highways, public libraries, school lunch, sewer systems, fire department, police department, social security, farm and oil subsidies. Wait, those are all great things, And not incompatible with a free market. We will never be a socialist country, don't worry you paranoid alarmist ****. I say this as neither a socialist or a liberal. I am a capitalist. You need to find something else to be threatened by, you dumb ****.

    Btw, I agree about the insurgent socialist agenda. Has been slowly infiltrating our history, right? Public parks, highways, public libraries, school lunch, sewer systems, fire department, police department, social security, farm and oil subsidies. Wait, those are all great things, And not incompatible with a free market. We will never be a socialist country, don't worry you paranoid alarmist ****. I say this as neither a socialist or a liberal. I am a capitalist. You need to find something else to be threatened by, you dumb ****.

    Nobody looks at your ankle. When was the last time you looked at some guy's ankle? If it bothers you so much then wear thicker socks.
