Strong and flexible feet muscles are so important for balance. Think about it: we don’t stand stiff and statically like soldiers; our bodies are constantly swaying and moving, relying on the muscles in our feet and ankles for stabilization. Throughout our day, our feet and ankles are continuously making slight adjustments to correct our balance, placing the weight of our body over our feet. If our feet and ankles are stiff, sore or weak, they won’t be able to make the strong, swift adjustments you depend on to rock your workouts. Try these exercises for strong, supple, pliable feet.
