Ankle Mobility

I have the same problem of next to no ankle dorsiflexion due to an old injury. Mine was pretty bad, though, so I’ve been tapping away at this over a while. I posted how I warm up my ankles over here, and got some helpful feedback on how I can do a bit more as well:

It can help a lot to get Olympic Lifting shoes (if you don’t have them already). The slight heel raise helps a lot of people - even ones who don’t normally have difficulty with ankle dorsiflexion. I got my shoes altered to 2x standard height. Which isn’t a fix… But it does prevent me falling on my butt when Oly Lifting / Squatting. Wide stance hurts the anterior part of my femur so that wasn’t really an option for me.


thanks Alexus, some really helpfull stuff in there. Will definately start encorporating this into my routine. cheers
