Weighted Ankle Stretch


The Weighted Ankle Stretch is a forced method of increasing your ankle mobility at the joint. This method has been used to imporve your dorsiflexion angle which in turn gives you a better ROM at the ankle. A better ROM at the ankle will mean a better squat position that is more balanced.
 
The weight can either be body weight or increased by adding a weighted kettlebell or dumbbell.
 
1. Bring feet to hip width apart.
2. Raise heels off the floor.
3. Lower body until you are sitting on your heels with the entire body weighing on the balls of your foot.
4. Hang on to support structure or balance there if you can.
5. Stay there for up to 5 minutes.
6. Add extra weight if needed for more stimulus.
 
 
Benefits:
Improved dorsiflexion angle
Better bottom squat position
