Dear ankles, you’re often neglected in mobility and flexibility training. But today is your day!
Okay, athlete. Want to squat strong and deep? Your ankles better have the mobility.
Want to tackle plantar fasciitis? Time to stretch those achilles!
Run better, jump higher, stay injury free? You get the picture!
Ankle dorsiflexion is the movement of pulling the toe up wards towards as the heel stays down. And if you have limited range of motion, you’re going to have problems up the line (knee, hip, back) and down the line (plantar fascia and the rest of the foot).
So let’s turn to Coaches Chris and Megan, with an assisted ankle stretch that will take you all of two minutes, so let’s get cracking!
