Improve Your Ankle Movement!
Ankle mobility is a key factor to optimising your lower limb mechanics and performance, whether you are a weightlifter or sportsman/woman.
Deficient ankle mobility is usually linked with having poor ankle dorsiflexion and joint space, which can commonly be accompanied with that famous pinch at the front of your ankle! FIX THIS as the hip and knee region have a tendency to compensate for an ankle restriction, and will therefore be in overdrive (potentially leading to further issues).
Let us help you in this video: 1) Banded ankle distraction in standing 2) Goblet squat with banded ankle distraction 3) Active dorsiflexion ankle mobilisation in sitting Give the above drills ago! Complete 2~3 sets per exercise, or just until you feel more movement in your ankle.
