How to make long legs seem even longer...add tempo to the descent🙅🏼🙄
LONG legs are great for running, not so much for overhead squatting. Often times the limiting factor for the achievement of full depth is the lack of dorsi flexion in your ankles. Here are some tips to help improve that.
1. Ditch the Olympic lifting shoes for a while and squat in flats. Olympic lifting shoes have elevated heels, which is perfect for setting the knees in a position to track forward. Dropping down to flat ground level creates more of a demand on good dorsiflexion, forcing you to master that ability yourself.
2. Strengthen the shins by doing toe raises, heel walks, and by being aware of dorsiflexion during hip and core movements.
3. Be aware of fallen arches. Doing fascial release to the plantar fascia can have a direct effect on the malleability of the calves. In turn, that can allow the ankle dorsiflexors the opportunity to work without being "blocked."
