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.
Slightly tight and sore gastroc, no change after mobilization.
Bonesaw, I notice that the tissues are sore, but my ankle flexion doesn’t change.
Working on the heel (sides), super sore, still no change.
Ankle mob with lateral band distraction: Here I can feel the tightness (I don’t feel anything with the other banded distraction mobs, except impingement when the band is at the front), but I don’t see any difference after 2-3 min. I’m always making sure my ankle isn’t collapsed. And my knee feels like it’s about to explode in full knee flexion when doing this mob.
Tight adductors – when I do the banded olympic wall squat to work on my adductors I heally have to struggle to keep my feet straight, after 5 min my adductors are shaking 😛
Tight, scarred down hamstring – don’t think that got anything to do with it.
My feet have good arches, no collapsing.
Basically everything feels sore and slightly stiff, but I don’t see any changes after working on the different pieces. When I do the ankle wall mobilization I feel like I just hit a wall – no impingement pain – I just stop and I cant push further no matter what position.
I’ve addressed the tightness in my gastroc, adductors, hamstrings, heel cord, quads, ant./pos. tibialis; but it wasn’t until I started working more on the hip capsules I noticed difference in the squat. (I check my ankle flexion seated by pointing my toes toward me, though.)
