It’s funny seeing you here. What’s a _______ like you, doing in a place like this. Oh, I know, you are one of these people that takes care of themselves, knows the benefits of proactive healthcare, and loves to perform at their highest level. You are in the best place possible! Wednesday Movement Vault starts in 3, 2, 1……Let’s go!
Equipment Needed: 1) Padded Mat. We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your ankles and hips. We are starting off with a muscle/facia release for your calf muscles, specifically your soleus and gatrocnemius. You don’t need any tools for this technique as you will be using your own hands. Yes you do have the power to release your own muscles, with your thumbs and the proper guidance. Next, we are working on an active end-range stretch for the back of your ankle. The key with this movement is to first make sure that you stretch out the back of your ankle as much as possible, and then contract your muscles while they are being stretched out. Next we have a full range of motion activation movement for your ankles. Focus on moving your ankle in the biggest circle as possible. Try to use every little millimeter of range of motion that you have. You really need to put in the effort on these. We are finishing up with a muscle activation technique for your hips. Try to bring your leg as far out to the side as possible while keeping your low back flat. Focus on only moving your hips.
