Pistol Squats! How to Release Your Calves.
I’ve read enough blogs and exercise programmes to know that ankle flexibility and mobility is the holy grail of the squat world.
I just finished reading a blog that made me cringe… it was about a young lad who tortured his calves with daily stretches so that he could perform pistol squats. After months of this work he concluded that there was very little improvement.
While I can safely say that I have zero interest in being able to do this crazy movement, I do know that gaining even a couple of degrees in ankle flexibility can make all the difference to the way you walk or the way your burning calves feel.
I know that stretching very tight muscles is silly. Your brain made them tight for a reason and you have to find the reason why before you can release them.
I also know that there are two specific activation points on the body that release your calves in seconds.
Do you want to know them too?😉Clinic days Tuesday and Thursday online coaching on Wednesday.
