Prime your feet and ankles in this propulsion-focused practice for athletes (propulsion is the force that drives, for example, the runner’s body forward).
You’ll warm up with dynamic ankle stretches from seated, a long hold in a kneeling toe stretch (especially good for runners and jumpers), a toe differentiation/coordination exercise, and more. Then, you’ll move on to foot mobility work in down dog, breath-infused propulsive movement from down dog into a hovering table, and dynamic lunge variations.
Enjoy building more movement integrity for your sport!
