Improving Ankle Mobility with Tib Bar Raises for Pain-Free Training
Dealing with poor ankle mobility can be a real pain, but it doesn't have to be. Ankle mobility is crucial for deep squats, powerful strides, and maintaining healthy, pain-free knees.
Using a simple 5-inch wall test, it became clear that my right ankle was lacking in mobility. But don't just take my word for it, check out @squatuniversity for a full breakdown and other fantastic tips!
Currently, I'm incorporating these two exercises into my mobility routine to build my long-lasting ankle mobility
- Weighted calf stretches
- Tib Bar raises into my routine.
Doing 15-20 reps helps to lengthen and strengthen all the structures supporting the ankles, including muscles and ligaments. You can also add other calf mobilizations and exercises to your routine (again, check out squatuniversity).
