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!
