1.) I find that when I hold on to something my form is slightly different.
2.) When I don’t hold on to something, and I work on my ankle ROM I can feel myself use the ankle to stabilize the rest of my body. It almost feels like my body is using the ankle to lean in the squat position.
3.) I would argue that the 10 minute squat test is the means to creating shin and ankle strength if you are correct. I feel like I should be doing my daily banded distractions and smashing and then every Sunday night do a 10 minute squat test or perhaps after everyday…can’t we go crazy?
