Why do we Train our Athlete’s Feet and Ankles?


Did you know our legs strike the ground with 4-5x our own bodyweight when we sprint? This power is generated from your hips and core then transferred through your lower limb, ankle, and foot. This force transfer then propels you through the air into your next strike. The only part of your body that touches the ground is the foot!


So if you lack strength in this area all that force could go to waste! Here are the main points that your foot and ankle are responsible for while you run:

✅ Stiffness for force transfer in max velocity running

✅ Proprioception (your body’s spacial awareness)

✅ Proper alignment for running gait

✅ Mobility (strength in end ranges of motion) for acceleration and change of direction


❗️Check out the exercises below in the attached video. Look for these exercises in our summer program❗️
