Squat Quick Test: Is it your Ankles or Hips?

    08/30/2012 | 12 Comments

      Hey Mwodies,

      Athletes are always asking us if their squat is suffering because of their tight hips or because of their tight ankles.  The answer is it’s both obviously…But we can be a little more nuanced in our understanding.  You could call this quick test a little differential diagnosis or advanced clinical reasoning.  Either way, it’s based on actual movement and it’s in the language that you already speak (strength and conditioning). Besides, you should be able to pistol,  or shoot the duck while roller skating at the Skate King in the first grade, holding “Brandy’s” hand….. I’m sure it’s not your fault you missed that   500lb squat the other day (it’s your ankle’s fault…)
