The Secret To Deep Squats: Unlock Your Tibia & Ankle Mobility
Description: Deep squats are as functional as it gets when it comes to functional movements. However, the majority of people around the world are unable to do this! BUT WHY?!
In this video, we dive deep into what we believe to be the ultimate secret to deep squats - foot, ankle, and tibia mobility. From a functional standpoint, the ability to move well and move often starts with your foot, ankle, and shinbone. Mobility in this region can and will directly influence movement along the entire kinetic chain - which describes the interrelated groups of body segments, connecting bones, muscles, and joints working together to perform movements. In order to not cause issues up the chain, we need to assess and optimize mobility at the beginning of the chain - the foot, ankle, and shinbone!
In this video, you will learn how to functionally assess and improve the deep squat. We provide a step-by-step process for how to assess ankle and tibia mobility. Not only do we examine the talocrural joint, but we also look at the tibiofemoral, tibiofibular, and coupled motion at other joints in the foot and ankle!
