If you’re looking to improve your ankle mobility, be sure to tune into this week’s episode. We often see people trying to improve their ankle mobility by doing ankle mobs and calf stretches, and quite frankly, that’s just not going to cut it. So if we actually take the time to look upstream at the things happening at the pelvis and rib cage, ankle mobility tends to clean itself up. And to be honest, it’s often something that is potentially misdiagnosed.
This is why I wanted to bring on the Rebel crew, Keiran Halton, Lance Goyke, and Ryan Patrick to sit down and debrief our approach for improving ankle mobility. In the episode, the four of us unpack how we view limited range of motion at the ankle and what the actual driver or contributor to that is. Listen in to discover how we go about improving ankle mobility so you can look good and move well.
