What's the best way for improving ankle dorsiflexion?
It needs to be improved for sitting straight down in front squats. I tend to sit back too much. Gonna buy OLY shoes later but want to fix it as much as I can first.
Damn, that's a lot of squats. You must've built up gradually to that volume right? I can't imagine the DOMS the next day, ha.
My legs are a bit lagging, both in strength and size. Gonna increase my squat volume. Probably gonna ramp up to a top double or triple around 90%-95% and then do back-off sets 5x5 or 3x5. 3x5 front squats on DL days.
Actually, as soon as I posted that question I remembered that got the book as a PDF.
Checked out the part about ankle dorsiflexion and found some good stuff. Pretty much what I expected:
Some banded distractions moving in and out of end range and some seriously painful digging with the lacrosse ball. Aslo tried that thing when you put the lacrosse ball around your heel cord and ankle and hit it real hard to unglue the muscles (?).
Did it for 10 minutes or so but barely noticed any difference. Never experienced such a stubborn issue before. Def gonna get squat shoes when I'm back home.
That leaves me to the next question:
What squat shoes are you guys using?
Wanna buy a good pair once. Doesn't really matter if it's a bit more expensive. Currently looking at Adipowers and Romaleos 2.
