How to play double bass.

I've been playing doulbe bass for about 4months now and i've learn't 16th at about 120bpm, but i dont know if im playing correctly. I've read about playing with your ankles, but does this mean you dont acctaully lift your leg or what?

Do you have any tips on how to play double bass to be able to achieve fast speeds and good techniques. Also some tips on posture would be very helpfull.
