Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
In answer to your questions, my ankle ROM is pretty good, I can get into a pistol position and hold it, so I guess that’s not the problem, I have been mobilising daily but was taking more of a carpet bomb style approach to it, (just trying to hit as many different areas as possible, and see what changes happen), Barbell quad/adductor smashing, IT Band rumble rollling, Calf bone saw and a few more. I also have been using the couch stretch, (the on the couch version not the leg up a wall version) as the leg leg/wall version was giving me a bit of discomfort in my knees)but did not really see an improvement in my knees, although a lot of the other tissues did feel massively improved!!
For the last few days, 2 or 3 times a day, I have spent more time working on my supra patella pouch and smashing my calves with a ball which seems to have calmed things down a little, but wasn’t sure if this was just because I haven’t squatted since Monday.
Do you think I should wait until the heat in my knees completely goes before returning to squats or just keep mobilising and working out??
