hey guys i do MMA, Bjj and mauy thai but at the end of last December i injured my ankle and didn't let it heal so now im paying the price.
So long story short im healing now but i been told to do weight training to strengthen my ligaments, does anyone know how to go about this i tried googling it but there wasn't to many specifics.

Ive broken both my ankles tearing the ligamnets in both with the breaks. Never had to go to real rehab but my doc did give me resistance bands and exercises to do, my ankles are much better now and I can say that the bands helped a lot, look into that.

You could do the traditional calf press/toe raises as well as the band-resisted movements. I'd also add in some barefoot training in your routine.
