Practising one footers is a great way to build ankle strength, the other good way is to play lots of funky grooves with lots of 100 bpm 16th one foot hits, not constant like a blast but broken, which does wonders for foot technique.

rather than concentrate on doing X for Y amount of time, just add more one footed groove to your drumming, this is how I built up my right AND left foot.

I still do an exercise to strengthen my independence (which is shit) a play a beat right side, then try and mirror it with my left.

and also practising the one footer while you are sitting down etc. is a good workk out, just sit there using ankle only tapping, it will piss people off, but fuck em, they aren't going to be a great drummer.
