Foot And Ankle Mobility is a shorter sequence in which we flow through a series of exercises to loosen up and mobilise tight feet and ankles. Try to make your movements as slow and mindful as possible for the best results. This sequence gets progressively more difficult as you move through the exercises, so do as much as you can and come back to the routine a couple of times a week to see improvements over time.
One of the main causes of tight feet and ankles is that we walk around in shoes, most of the time, and these are like casts for our feet. Underneath, our feet and ankles are atrophying, becoming weaker and losing dexterity. See how much of the time you can spend barefoot, especially when you’re exercising and challenging your body to move in multiple different directions over varied terrain.
