THIS is the photo I meant to post! Top of Foot Stretch! Jeez you'd think I could tell the diff between Calf Stretch and ToFS by now.
This pic shows a common fault when doing ToFS - the heel will roll out making it feel like you have more range of motion than you really do. Bring the heel in so that the foot is straight through its axis. You might not have all the toes on the ground now. Rolling the heel in and out is okay if you want to explore the top of the foot, but sitting in this position thinking you are doing the stretch is only missing out on the nutrients you could be getting.

Phase 1.1 : reversing the effects of footwear
馃懀
Spending years in poor footwear has had a tremendous effect on your feet (and not in a good way). The first phase requires us to start reversing those effects and restore our feet back to baseline. The first stage of phase 1 consists of two parts: start spending less time in footwear and restore your foot mobility & tissue health
馃懀
Spending more of your day out of footwear (excludes running/exercising for now) starts with 30 daily minutes completely barefoot at home or work. Increase this amount by 30 minutes every day if no foot pain symptoms arise and continue until you鈥檙e spending as much time as possible barefoot during the day
馃懀
Restoring foot mobility and tissue health starts with 5 daily minutes per foot rolling out your sole over a lacrosse ball. With tolerable pressure (discomfort is okay but not intense pain) roll from heel to toe and side to side making sure to cover the entire foot
馃懀
Simple yet powerful stuff. Start today, be consistent and in 7 days we will post phase 1.2 in the journey to reclaim foot health. Videos to come in the next 7 days covering different techniques to mobilize the foot joints and tissues

Getting some gnarly muscles moving with Emma Kate at @fitnesskickflemington and trying to loosen what needs activity! This was surprisingly difficult to do without cramping, but after several reps it worked!

@Regrann from @optimizeottawa - Double foot smash to open up the feet with a pair of lacrosse balls. Powerful mobilization works on balance, feedback from the feet and frees up all the muscles under the foot while mobilizing those 33 important joints we sometimes forget to move. Tolerable discomfort is fine but it might take a bit of work to build up to this if your feet are really stiff and tight. Daily foot maintenance is a mega element is whole body posture

@Regrann from @thefootcollective - Arch building series #2

Now that you鈥檝e eliminated arch killers (spending too much time in shoes, spending time in crappy shoes), and have a base of tissue mobility from doing lacrosse ball work, lets remove another major arch killer: tight calves. when the calf is tight, we steal the missing ankle range from the foot. buy some motion at the ankle and offload the arch from compensating. Spend 5 minutes daily using a dowel or broomstick to clean up the calf tissues and open up the ankle. Proper ankle mobility = major element in escaping foot dysfunction

Get Friendly With Those Feet and Ankles
.
Check out my post (lots of videos) and train those feet and ankles to do what they're supposed to do. When that happens you might just notice some amazing changes.
.
I've noticed remarkable changes in my foot and ankle mobility in the past two years, as I've learned and adopted the Functional Range Conditioning principles.
.
To make real lasting mobility changes it takes hard work and consistency over time. But the fruits that come from that time and effort are some of the most rewarding I have ever experienced.
.
Remember, you must provide your body with enough stimulus for change! A few minutes of foam rolling and a couple stretches as a warm up and cool down aren't going to cut it! Commit to mobility WORK.

Twice a day, three minutes per foot. Find a soft spot and dig in!
During the first few sessions you may hear a crunching sound especially on the inside of the foot where the arch is. That's alright it's just you stripping away stress built up in the plantar facia.
.
This may get uncomfortable in the beginning but keep at it and you will find that you can roll for longer each time. 鈥斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺斺

Hot dry sand will wake up your feet and have you feeling hella powerful. Notice how much harder it is to walk on the beach as opposed to solid ground. This is because your feet have to work literally twice as hard to traverse sand.
.
If you get a chance to do so, try walking, training and/or running on the beach. It might humble you in the beginning but you feet will thank you in the long run.

鉁≒LANTAR FASCIITIS - strengthening鉁
Last post!! Hammer in the first 3 and this should come last to help increase strength and stability of the plantar fascia 馃挭
To increase intensity, add a towel roll under the toes during heel raises. This will place the plantar fascia on increased stretch as the big toe extends at the top of the heel raise.
CAUTION: Make sure you have mobilized the big toe to increase the extension mobility with the previous videos prior to adding this progression! (Found in Tuesday's video!)
馃敹 HEEL RAISES 馃敹
Be sure the maintain ankle alignment and big toe extension appropriately by maintaining the majority of the weight over the ball of the foot under the big toe.
Also! When you maintain alignment, you properly fire the fibularis longus (aka - peroneus longus) along the outside of the lower leg. This muscle wraps from the outside of the leg (on the fibula) to the base of the 1st metatarsal (or the ball of the foot under the big toe). It also helps to support the arch, so it's important to focus on this ankle alignment when performing heel raises.

Want to move and feel better? Looking for better performance? Try mobilizing those ankles! Detailed write up and videos coming soon on my blog. .
After 20+ minutes of PAIL/RAILs work on the ankles, I spent a few minutes working some flow and lift-offs, then got into some duck walk variations 馃
.
INLINE DUCK WALKS:
.
This is one of my favorite drills to prep the feet, ankles, and hips to handle load at a bunch of different angles. Awesome prep for life AND lower body workout or high impact training.
.
鈥硷笍IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE 鉃★笍Healthy and properly functioning joints make difficult movements easier鈥硷笍
.
@drandreospina said this in some form, and it's so true! Simply improving foot/ankle health & mobility feels like it creates miracles!
.
I used to do these duck walks the same way backward as I did forward. But after improving my ankle mobility a while back I kind of accidentally fell into pistol squats! That's when the big point above really hit home for me. The pistol squats were easy today, easier than they've EVER been. I haven't done any form of pistol squats in several months, I haven't even been doing heavy squats of ANY kind. And I've actually done less typical "strength" training than usual recently. But I HAVE been crushing foot and ankle mobility work. Which truly is strength training, and the kind you should prioritize. You can see the results.
.
Go get after those feet and ankles! Again, I'll be posting more details soon on IG and my blog.

Unleash your feet: Repost from @betterarch 馃懀Barefoot Fact馃懀
.Your feet are designed to efficiently distribute force so that the rest of your body does not take a hit. Conventional shoes prevent the human foot from doing this as they trap the numerous joints and muscles and don't allow them to work to their full potential.
.
This is one of the reasons why your gait could be flawed. Since modern shoes provide you with a faux cushion, they also make it ok to heel strike. They also allow you to strike the ground harder than you normally would if you were barefoot. This force does not get absorbed by the shoe cushion but rather by your knees, hips, lower back etc. Yikes...
.
By going barefoot you will immediately start waking up those dormant muscles in the foot. You will also notice how awesome and natural it feels to stabilize and balance on your feet rather than relying on cushioned shoes. Oh and you will also prevent countless injuries.
.
Know this, your feet are incredible feats of engineering, you just need to unleash them.

馃檶馃徎 Running Gait Analysis 馃檶馃徎
.
The tendencies you have when you go for a run matter! You absorb 3-6 times your body weight every time your foot hits the ground. If there is a flaw to your gait, rest assured your body will feel it one way or another.
.
This is a simple test that can clue you in as to where your running technique may be lacking. Simply pick a good patch of wet sand and start running. Do this for a few hundred feet and then go back and analyze the footprints.
.
Are they equidistant from each other? What do most of them look like? These are the questions you should be asking yourself. The picture above is a guide for what your footsteps may look like.
.
(From left to right)
.
馃懀Footprint 1 - Heel Strike
馃懀Footprint 2 - Mid-foot Strike
馃懀Footprint 3 - Forefoot Strike
.
If you are seeng lots of heel strikes in your gait, keep this in mind the next time you run and try to land on your mid-foot or forefoot. This will allow your calf, ankle and foot muscles as well as your Achilles tendon to work together as they were meant to: absorbing force and then allowing you to push off of it. Heel striking disrupts this process and redistributes the force of every step to the knees, hips and lower back.
.
Barefoot footwear and beach running can help mitigate this problem as they fundamentally improve the way you run. Ultimately this is one of the many tests your can perform on yourself in order to see how well you move. Keep testing, stay active and always improve.

Happy Flexible Friday! Do you suffer from tight feet and ankles? Do you have foot pain? Today Dr. Clare is going to show you a great stretch for the bottom of your feet to help increase foot/ankle mobility and decrease pain!
This stretch is also GREAT to help treat or prevent plantar fasciitis and to decease your heel pain! 馃憤馃徎馃檶馃徎 #stretch #mobility #movement #anklemobility #footmobility #plantarfasciitis #plantarfascia #pain #painbegone #anklestretch #footstretch #myofascialrelease #dcrehab #dcphysicaltherapy #dcpt #painbegone #injuryprevention #releasephysicaltherapy #physicaltherapy #wellnessmadebyhands #equinox #equinoxdc

Doing some barefoot activation on a rock where the Veleka river and the Black Sea meet in Bulgaria near a town called Sinemorets. Absolutely gorgeous spot since the two bodies of water form a mini-peninsula of perfect sand. It's also an awesome place to train the soles of your feet.
.
The soles are amongst the most nerve-rich parts of the body. Going barefoot gives your body balance and allows those receptors to do their job. Shoes limit the amount of information that gets sent from your feet to your brain and don't allow your body to work to its full potential. Go barefoot any chance you get and you will immediately feel the difference.
