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.
I’m definitely not kissing the ground with my heels. I’d say I’m overloading that posterior tib and it’s hating life.
Good news is I have strong arches and my feet don’t collapse. I have a strong background in martial arts so having strong feet from being bearfoot for years is a blessing at this point. I have smashed under side of feet, back of leg, you name it with little to no pain. My ROM is very decent so that was why I felt stumped when trying to solve this problem. Turns out I can chalk it up to bad technique.
I’ll be sure to steal some attention from my instructor next time DU’s are in the WOD. Thank you both!
