We all know we should do it, but it’s “boring.” So this is where I put rehab and skill work.
A - More jump rope to strengthen the calf and hopefully the stretch reflex. It doesn’t LOOK better, but I’m not in horrible pain as I do this as with the last video I posted.
B - More ankle rehab, this time to strengthen the anterior tibia muscle. I press into full dorsiflexion, then try to flex and keep my foot there as a rock back on the heel.
C - Ab work for aerial class. Keeping my arms straight and pressing my hands into the ground, I have to lift my hips and slide my knees under me. I tend to “skip” using my lower abs, and this movement won’t happen if I don’t fire them first.
