In the last week of September we will be performing a combination of movements from week 2 and week 3 of this month, so make sure you go back and check them out!
The Flexion/Extension Foot Exercise that we are performing requires a resistance band. Don’t have one? You can pick one up for a very affordable price at your local Athletico or off of Amazon!
If you have any foot, shin or calf injuries, please do not perform this week’s stretch.
How to perform:
Tip: You can do this exercise seated with one leg pulled in as shown in the photos, or you can do it while sitting in a chair, with the leg performing the movements straight and the other foot planted on the floor. In either position, make sure you’re sitting tall. Place a folded blanket under you if you are on the floor and having trouble sitting up straight.
This exercise is a great strengthener as well as a good stretch! Enjoy!
