Mobility Monday : Ankles
Ankles!What better place to start with mobility than the oft forgotten but foundational joint, our ankles. This week's video is courtesy of Kelly Starret, coach, physical therapist & creator of the Mobility WOD.
"MobilityWOD is the ultimate guide to resolving pain, preventing injury, and optimizing athletic performance. Humans have been evolving for 2.5 million years and the human body is extraordinarily engineered. While people are born with this incredible machine, they aren’t born with the right software to run that machine.
The MobilityWOD is designed to help you hack your body’s mechanics and provide the tools to perform basic maintenance on yourself."
Mobility drills should be part of your daily warmup & rest days are a great chance to pick a few 'sticky' joints and do some more aggressive 'mobbing'. We'll post more mobility videos here but if you have issues with poor range of motion in your shoulders, hips, lumbar, ankles, whatever!, go check out his site, do a little googling, get a good book and take an active approach to fixing yourself!
