Day 5 – The Weighted Ankle Stretch

Today we work on our ankle mobility.  Having more dorsiflexion will help your squat.  The problem is that ankles are tight and don’t like to stretch.  So this one will take some time and some pressure.  If you can’t sit in a squat comfortably, place your foot on a box or take a lunge step forward. You can probably tolerate more weight than you think, but if it hurts your knee or ankle, then decrease the load.

Here are the rules for the 30-Day Stretch Fucking Harder Challenge.  Each day do the deep stretch, post it on Instagram and tag some friends to do it with you. Post your stretch with the tags: #stretchfuckingharder #supplepandas #30daypandachallenge  Tag me @coachpanda.  Come back here to my website or vimeo channel to see more details on each stretch and modifications and scaling options.   Try to stay in each stretch for at least 2 minutes per stretch per side. Remember to breathe slowly and deeply and start gradually and move deeper over time.  Back off if it hurts.
