Correcting Weak Ankles
Here is a demonstration of a split squat with rotation top combat weak, hyper-pronating ankles.In this case I am using the Pilates Reformer machine, but this can be done as a bodyweight movement.
Ankle hyper-prontaion occurs often when a client uses their hip, knee and ankles joints together in a movement like walking, jogging, a squat or spilit squat etc.
When your ankle hyper-pronates, the knee can cave inwards, adding extra stress from the foot up to the hip and onwards up the chain. This may lead to some sort of overuse injury, if not corrected early on.
Add this into your warm ups, or training, to help you move better.
