Ultimate Ankle Strength
In training for Ultimate, we often dedicate much of our time to training our energy systems (cardio-respiratory fitness) and muscle systems (posterior chain work with deadlifts and the like), but arguably undertrain our feet / ankles, our hands (grip strength), and our eyes (sports vision).
This video, a UltiTraining.com exclusive, demonstrates some basic and advanced ankle mobility / flexibility, balance and strength drills (courtesy of Z-Health performance systems).
Train your ankles (appropriately) in the off-season and they’ll be better off when you cleat up (restricting their movement) and get ready for the Game. For optimal results, please consult with your local strength coach / CK-FMS / Z-certified movement professional.
And Happy Gregorian New Year =)
