Flat soles didn't help the squatting any and you can see how inflexible my bad ankle is as the heel keeps coming up. But really I don't think these are doing what I want them to do which is stretch and get blood going. They just kind of made me feel worse afterward.
Anyway, there you go. Plowed through it. Massive eating tonite. I know it looks like I am wasting away. haha. But I am just keeping it clean and eating as much as I want. Just no crap, although I am going to have a beer tonite, maybe two, but no more than that.
Onward and upward.
Recently found ankle flexibility problems too. Started standing in front of a wall one foot back for support the other a few inches away from the wall. With the foot a few inches away from the wall you bend the knee till it touches the wall and hold till the ligament realizes its needs to adapt. Repeat if needed.
Just continue to move your foot away from the wall further till you reach your goal. You can stretch the other ankle if needed but in my case the limber one has a range double the one I broke years ago.
Great training always like coming in here seeing your progress.
