An extremely powerful way to mobilise the muscles of both the front and back of the lower leg. This will create improved range of motion for the ankle & knee, improved foot function, increased length and facilitation of all of the muscles of the lower leg. All aspects of the foot and leg are addressed in this series. An excellent warm up prior to any exercise or sporting activity and as a maintenance routine to keep feet, knees and ankles moving well whilst reducing tightness and restriction of all associated muscles.
A gentle release of what can be a very uncomfortable area. Calves are notoriously tight and have a significant effect on how efficiently we are able to move. A very important release to ensure optimal function and alignment. This release focuses on the stuck stress in the calves with options to progress for those who feel that it is appropriate and tolerable to do so. This is a great release to do daily as a standalone sequence or use it prior to stretching to optimise the effectiveness of work you may already be doing.
Release and hydrate calves quickly and effectively using the Franklin Balls. This release is done kneeling so not suitable if that is not possible. This area is notoriously tight and can have a negative effect on movement patterns, recruitment of other muscle groups such as glutes and of course contribute to foot and joint pain. This release is effective on it's own and also as preparation for other stretches or movements you may be doing to maintain healthy calves.
A low back and sacroiliac (SI) joint release along that will provide relief from tension and pain in the low back and hips. This release also includes some techniques that will create some deep recruitment of the pelvic stabilisers which will allow the nervous system to learn how to more efficiently stabilise the pelvis. You should feel a tremor of these deep, hard to find muscles which turn on automatically. The goal is to allow the nervous system to find these muscles without the need for “sucking” or “scooping” or squeezing of the glutes – all methods that our conscious brain will use to incorrectly stabilise this area and in so doing create tightness and tension. Enjoy the work in this one and then enjoy the amazing release you have worked hard for!
