Tight hips and shoulders are something we work on a lot to get us moving better. But another problem area for many of us is the ankles. If you have tight ankles you may not be able to get your knees forward at all in a squat and that means your center of gravity will be shifted back and will limit how upright your torso can be when squatting.

Not having an upright torso becomes problematic when you are trying to support weight in the front rack or overhead.

Here's an article from CrossFit Invictus on how to test your ankle mobility and seven drills to work on it. Hopefully if you need some more range of motion in the ankle some of this will help.
