How to improve big toe mobility

🏃‍♀️ Runners, let's talk about improving big toe mobility! 💪

In a previous post here, we discussed the importance of big toe mobility and how to test it. Now, we're excited to share some of our favourite techniques to enhance it. 📹

First things first, it's crucial to determine if you should & can improve it. Certain conditions may limit flexibility, so consult with a professional if you're unsure. But if you're good to go, here are our top recommendations: ✅

🔹 Self-Massage: Grab a massage ball or use a massage gun on the sole of your foot. Don't forget to target the muscles higher up the leg where they originate!

🔸 Hands-On Mobilization: Take hold of your big toe and gently apply traction while bending it forward and backward. This will help increase flexibility.

🔹 Calf Raises with Big Toe Extension: Amp up your calf raises by placing something underneath your toes, like the Fasciitis Fighter or slant board shown in this video. This added extension will challenge your big toe mobility.

🔸 Front Plank Mobilization: Get into a front plank position and gently rock back and forth on your toes. This exercise will engage & improve the mobility of your big toe.

Give these techniques a try and let us know how they work for you! 🏃‍♂️💥
