Ankles Rolling?? Ankle Position For A Better Workout
Your workout maybe suffering because on your ankle position (rolling in or rolling out). Imagine the Jenga game. If the bottom piece is not lined up correctly the whole thing will not be supported and will fall. This is the same way your body works. If your ankle position is off it can affect how you translate with your ankles, hips, back …all the way up to your head. Make sure your ankle position is aligned correctly and you will “save” your joints, muscles and body as you get older.
What To Look For In Correct Ankle Position
Things you want to watch for in ankle posture is:
The shape of your ankle when you are standing on it. Is your ankle rolling in (pronating) or is it (rolling out) supinating.
Correct Ankle Position
You want to make sure your foot is flat and your foot is in line with your leg and shin bone.
When you are standing, make sure your feet are evenly supported. You do not want to be rolling on your ankle. You want to make sure everything is even and lined up and equal pressure on all the toes.
From the side view, you do not want the arch to disappear (pronating) and you do not want to see it too much of the arch (supinating). You want to have even distribution of weight on all of your toes and ankle.
Next time you are in bare feet, go ahead and take a look at your tootsies. See if your ankles are rolling in or rolling out.
