What if we could see through your shoes when squatting and uncover the position of your feet? What would they look like?? . Ideally we want to see a small arch in the foot, the big toe jammed down and the entire foot actively grabbing the ground. If we looked on the underside of the foot, your bodyweight would be evenly spread across three points of contact (the heel, base of the 1st toe and 5thtoe) called the tripod foot. This set up allows your body to stay balanced and produce tremendous power.? . Issues like knee collapse are almost always connected to the feet. If we took the shoes away, watch what happens. The arch of the foot collapses over meaning the foot lost stability which created the cascade of compensations up the leg creating the knee cave you saw.? . A drill I like to use to promote an active stable foot is the hip airplane. Stand on one foot, grab the ground to create stability before then tipping over towards the ground like you’re performing a single leg RDL. Once you reach the bottom, rotate your body upwards and back down – the whole time focusing hard on maintaining your stable foot. If your foot is naturally flat – don’t worry. While you may not be able to make an arch in your foot, still think about staying balanced across all three points of the tripod.? . To read more on the foot and its role in movement/technique, check out the blog article linked in my bio? – Shout out to @velaasa for the weightlifting shoes and @eleikosport for the barbell & weights featured today! Also thank you to @3d4medical with the Complete Anatomy app for the visual of the body?? _____________________________________ This is the 477th #SquatUclub eligible post!!

I get asked a lot about improving wrist flexibility—in most cases the wrists are fine and it’s instead an issue of shoulder mobility or just incorrect positions. But just in case, here’s my take on improving wrist flexibility. First, before you do any wrist stretches, shake out your hand and wrist well, then grab your hand and pull it straight out from your forearm to decompress all the carpals. This will help you actually stretch instead of just jamming all those small bones together. Some of you may also find you get a jamming sensation near the outside of your wrist. Grab your wrist with your middle finger right over that bony protrusion and squeeze a few times to get the end of the ulna moving a little. The wrist and finger flexors are going to be tight in weightlifters, so this is where you’re going to spend most of your time. Push the fingers back first to get both the finger and wrist flexors. After that, push just the hand and relax the fingers to hit just the wrist. Stretch with both a bent and straight elbow. You can do straight arm stretches on a wall, the floor or a bar. While they’re likely not very tight, it’s a good idea to gently stretch the extensors as well. Simply reverse the flexor motions—push against the fingers, then just the hand. You can also get a little rotation by pushing against the thumb side while in a flexed position. Finally, throw in some ulnar deviation with the thumb gripped inside the fist, and also move into some wrist flexion while holding that deviated position. Tag some buddies who are too tense. #mobility #flexibility #wristmobility #wristflexibility #weightlifting #catalystathletics #garagemind #usaw #iwf @earthfedmuscle
