I think it’s an interesting concept.

1 – I think you should do so slowly.
2 – I think you should do so in front of a mirror.
3 – The 2 points above will help you ensure that you’re not rolling around an area of restriction.
4 – Possibly exaggerating the motion by doing a slight toe raise with every step. One way to help engrain a correct motor pattern is to add weight – in this case, your own body weight.
5 – Make sure you’re engaging your hip flexors and raising your femur high enough to allow for proper ankle ROM on the landing of each step.
