Ah, the calf squeeze! It can be pretty intense. It looks like you use the free foot to guide the wrap a bit, see if you can push the fabric out from the muscle to allow it to pass the belly of the calf to settle high on the ankle. The theraband exercises mentioned above might help as well. Even with wonderful flexibility, checking in with the active strength is valuable for an ankle hang. Active flex is uncommon for most activities unless you want to hang from an ankle. 😉 Internal rotation of the leg is helpful to set the ankle wrap on the outside of the foot and towards the heel. And then strong external rotation to keep the wrap from sickling the foot. Although the foot position is parallel visually, the push is towards a turn out of the leg. Solid work, can’t wait to see then next steps!
