CHEST BUMP!!!!! It’s been a great week, very productive! I appreciate you stopping by, in this video I cover four simple exercises that you can do to strengthening the tendons in your ankles and get them ready for the upcoming hoop season!!!! INJURY FREE IS THE WAY TO BE!!!! I learned this drill from Coach Blasquez at CAL Berkeley and really like how it feels when you’re done doing it. The tendons in your ankles feel activated, your calves are burning, and you can feel it even strengthening your feet. This drill is best done before track work or on court conditioning, after you wake those ankles, calves, and feet up it is good to get a nice stretch in. Then go into your conditioning workout. Set the cones about 8-10 feet.

Drill: Down and Back 8-10 Feet
-Pogo Hops (legs straight, focusing on pushing the balls of the feet in the ground)
-Alternate Flips (flipping the sand up, working the opposite of Pogo Hops)
-Zig Zag (almost as if your mogul skiing, really push down into the sand with your feet)
-In Out (point your feet in, then out, constantly forward, then as well when going backwards)

Create a great day!!!!!! -Coach T

    These exercises are great for shin splints and are a great change-up for student athletes! Thank you!!!! My high school kids (and their legs and feet) appreciated the strength and conditioning in a nontraditional, fun way.
