#Repost @docjenfit with @instatoolsapp ・・・ ✨FEET HEALTH✨ The foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, and 107 ligaments 😱 The foot is so very complex! And we put TONS of pressure on them, relying on them to get us through everyday. Yet, how much attention are you giving to them (besides the occasional pedicure 💅). I'm sure you certainly spend time bending those arms and legs at the gym to look pretty, but do you ever spend time bending the different joints of the foot? If you haven't started yet, I suggest you start now! Even if you have orthotics to help support your foot right now, you need to help support the foot with movement. And switching right to barefoot shoes after years of not working the feet or wearing regular shoes is not going to cut it! Try these exercises out and let me know what you think! . ✳️ Things to notice ✳️ ✅ As I move my foot into pronation/supination, my whole leg rotates as well! This is the reason you knee or hip pain can be coming from the foot! . ✅ As I do the short foot exercise, I'm trying not to squish my toes and only focus on pulling from my arch. . ✅ Toe flutters are HARD! They require a lot of motor control. Be patient and give your brain time to get used to them. . ✅ Heel Raises: are your ankles staying in line? Think of keeping the pressure over the ball of the BIG toe. This will also help with big toe mobility 👌 ✅ Single leg squat with short foot: hard!! Start with balancing on one foot with a short foot before you begin single leg squats. . ✅ The last exercise may be my favorite. Great for increasing ankle/toe mobility while working on stability from falling on your 🍑 Try them out and let me know what you think!! #docjenfit #MyodetoxLA #move2improve
