Ep 131: How to Improve Your Ankle Mobility

If you’re looking to improve your ankle mobility, then this episode is for you. We often see people trying to improve their ankle mobility by doing ankle mobs and calf stretches, and quite frankly, that’s just not going to cut it. This is why I wanted to bring on the Rebel crew, Keiran Halton, Lance Goyke, and Ryan Patrick to sit down and debrief our approach on improving ankle mobility.

The four of us unpack how we view limited range of motion at the ankle and what the actual driver or contributor to that is. Listen in to discover how we go about improving ankle mobility so you can look good and move well.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • [03:56] Cases where we’re actually going out and prescribing “ankle mobility”
  • [05:38] Traditional ankle mobs
  • [07:00] Non-traditional ankle mobs
  • [09:10] Why someone’s ankles may feel “tight”
  • [12:15] Why the calf turns on
  • [14:34] Ways to decrease tone in the calf
  • [17:05] Exercises to help optimize ankle mobility
  • [22:43] Drills you can do to help optimize ankle mobility
  • [24:11] Stiffness at the ankle
