STRETCHING SUNDAY 🧘🏽‍♀️

Ankle dorsiflexion (and lack thereof) can have a huge impact on our ability to effectively squat, lunge, sprint, walk, or even activate your glutes. Over time, compensations due to poor ankle mobility can cause injuries in the ankles, knees, hips and back. So do yourself a huge favor, BEFORE you hit the weight room or head out for a sweaty cardio sesh, spend a little time addressing your ankle range of motion.

In this video we demonstrate a simple yet effective ‘tri-angle’ ankle mobility active stretch using a dowel rod. If you don’t have a rod, you can use a broomstick or something similar. This is a great active stretch to prepare your body for a workout, or as a corrective and restorative stretch after a long day of wearing heels.

Perform 12-15 steady, controlled repetitions for each movement, on each foot. As always, breathe deeply throughout the movement. Meet YOUR body where it is and ALWAYS work within YOUR pain-free, available range.
