Distracted Ankle Mobility
Video by Libby Landry

Whether it be from injury or spending too much time in high heels, lots of people have limited ankle mobility which can cause poor positions in the squat, deadlift and even overhead. It is also maybe one of the top culprits of knee injuries in athletes, especially those who play sports with running and change of direction. Try this stretch before you lift, run or jump or even on your active recovery days to increase dorsiflexion of the ankle and lengthen the calf muscles. You should feel an immediate difference and notice you’re in a better position for many of your lifts!
