Forums General mobilizing for a deeper squat Re: mobilizing for a deeper squat

AvatarLonnie Arroyo

-I have tight hips and ankles! ( 5 years of college soccer, without proper stretching)

-Yes I do banded distractions daily every time I stretch (preworkout, and before bed) , and my joint capsules feel nice and mobile after I mobilize, then later on in the day, after my workout, or the next morning I stiffen up again, and its just the same cycle every day. How can I make lasting change in the joint capsule and connective tissue?
– i’ve had my mechanics looked at my strength coaches and everything is good, I just have limited range of motion. squeeze my butt, big breath then brace, hips back, then knees
– My sliding surfaces are pretty tacked down on my ankles. How often should i add in the ball whacking?
Thanks for the response!
