I sprained my ankle a couple years ago. Nowadays, if I do hard physical exercises continuously for a couple of days, it bungs and my ligaments start to hurt and I cannot encumber it. It usually occurs after some wrong ground contacts/touch-downs.

Can you give some exercises to strengthen it?

"Dogen's Titanium Ankles" - an excellent program designed for ankle injury prevention under extreme load:

This is pretty much the authoritative source on preventing ankle injury. Also, lots of calf raises with weight. Obviously progressing from no weight / with assistance, etc, since you were injured.
