There was a video where Kelly off-handedly mentioned “ball whacking” and said you could easily find videos on it here. I’ve watched a ton of ankle videos now and still can’t find anything on ball whacking. I do have bad sliding surfaces. PLEASE HELP. Where can I find this info?
It was in mobility course 101- pushing skin on inside ankle upwards toward knee with lacrosse ball. Also shin work-–push and twist skin/muscle with Gemini or lacrosse ball. Helped a bit. I have flat feet which is a problem. .
I’m changing shoes and arch support. Roop has a very recent video on ankle work on daily wod. I haven’t watched it yet. Good luck.
PS I guess I should forget the shoe part.
