This week, we are using a squat to help us gain some motion in our ankles. What’s that you say? A squat isn’t a stretch? Well, you may be right, but we are doing it anyway. Now that you learned the proper squat last week, you can use this version to help bring some mobility to your ankles and feet. Gaining some extra range of motion in your lower legs can help you squat lower without putting stress on your knees, hips, and low back.
This month, we have learned how to hinge (week one). We learned how to take that hinge into a squat (week two). In the second video, we are going to learn how to use the hinge for our lunge.
