How's your ankle mobility?
When strength training a good foundation is a must and as the ankle and foot form the foundation of most movements we perform on the gym floor adequate mobility of this joint is also a must. Restricted Dorsi flexion can not only decrease performance but also predispose athletes to injury.
Here is a simple test to see how your ankle mobility is.
Starting with your toe 3 inches off the wall in a kneeling position drive your knee over your second toe to try to touch the wall. Aim to keep the heel from lifting or your foot from collapsing in. Roughly 3 inches is the bare minimum you want to achieve, if you haven't got this then start some work to improve :) Swipe above to see some of my fav ankle mob drills. For any help on how to perform these feel free to pm me.

Crossfit open done and dusted for 2017. Never thought I'd be the physio to advocate this sport, but low and behold I gave it a go and loved it🙌. From a physio point of view I believe our bodies are designed to move and work and exercise. I had a very niggly back 6 months ago, and since implementing good technique with progressive overload under quality supervision, last week I was able to deadlift 55x102kg as part of the workout. And the best thing is I pulled up completely fine (apart from major DOMS in the hammies). And FYI to those that throw the 'injuries and crossfit' argument around, which I was very guilty of, the incidence rate is no higher than regular gym workouts (3.3 injuries per 1000 training hours)👊💯#athleticzone #functionwell #crossfit

Awesome session with these two guns. Hanging around other likeminded people in my opinion and experience is key to the growth and development of oneself. A big shout out and thanks to Darren Bain owner of function well for allowing the boys to train here today. Amazing gym and outstanding environment to train. Have an awesome day.

What are the benefits of regular Yoga sessions?⠀ ⠀
- Stretching and breathing methods will stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest)⠀
- Has a positive impact on the neurotransmitter GABA, calming your mind so you have a clear focus ready to attack your day⠀
- Increased ability to absorb nutrients and recover⠀
- Improved flexibility⠀
- Decreased risk of injury and it has the greatest impact on your overall fitness as mobility is often the limiting factor for people ⠀
