Foot, ankle, knee, or hip pain? Do you feel unstable when performing squats or lunges? Well then work on your foot intrinsics and learn how to drive that big toes into the ground‼️
Re-teach your nervous system how to use your foot’s deep intrinsic muscles to lift that arch upward and prevent a collapse of the knees due to a pronated foot 👎🏻
Your weight should be evenly distributed throughout your foot when performing movements. Many people put excessive weight on the outside of their foot and even sometimes lift their big toe up to “keep their knees out”🧐
Don’t do that!‼️All that does is cause a tibial torsion, which has effects all the way up the leg which can cause that ankle, knee, and hip pain😢
🧠Wait… also…Going on the outside of your foot and little toe also doesn’t make sense if you think about it 😤Going on the outside causes less surface area of your foot on the ground. Now there is less proprioceptive information about the where a-bouts of your foot going to your brain… and this is why you are all over the place and are less stable🧠 .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you properly disperse that weight in your foot & drive that big toe in the ground you will notice how much more stable you are because your whole foot is communicating with your brain and a clear game-plan is sent down to keep you stable. Now everything is aligned and engaging those glutes become 62827x easier!
