Wednesday, June 3
Let's face it, if your ankle mobility sucks, your movement all the way up the chain is most likely going to suck. It's just like anything else built on a bad foundation. Unfortunately, fixing the ankles is tough. 25 percent of your body's bones and muscles are in the foot/ankle. There's a lot going on down there and it's going to take some time to fix things. Watch the video below for a half hour session on mobilizing the ankle. You will find squatting, jerking, cleaning, snatching, overhead squatting, pistol-ing, and lots of other stuff will get a lot easier with improved ankle range of motion. This video will help, but you have to do it!
