My playground today! How do you workout your feet. The whole “if you don’t use it you’ll lose it” about muscles is true. Be good to yourself and use your INTRINSIC foot muscles (muscles that have attachments only within the foot) for a change. Everyday we are in shoes that brace our feet and teach us to mostly only use our EXTRINSIC foot muscles (muscles that have an attachment in the foot and an attachment on the leg (fibula, tibia or femur).
You CANNOT expect your feet, ankles, knees, hips, back, also calves, hamstrings, shins, thighs to “get better” without taking care of your FEET.
You can have the MOST beautiful house in the world; but, with a shitty foundation, it will fall, eventually. Only time will tell. You can blame your parents, your age, or whatever you want; but, until you cReAtE an environment that allows you to change your health nothing is going to happen.
How many unique positions can the foot hold? 8.38X1036 That is 8,600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 foot deformations. ~ by Katy Bowman. If you think wearing orthotics alone will fix your feet…….. think again. It’s all about Making Movement Matter 🙂
