We squat a lot. It's on of the most functional moments we do in CrossFit, yoga and life. As children we have the natural ability to squat...perfectly. It is only as we age that we loose our ability to do this most basic and fundamental movement.
The ability to squat below parallel requires the ability to create torque in your hips, knees and ankles. For many of us, lack of ankle mobility can be a liming factor. Here is a quick and easy test to see if you're missing range of motion in your ankle. If you are, spend at least 4 minutes EVERY DAY, 2 min per side, working on your ankles. Not only do you need ankle mobility for CrossFit, you need it for LIFE! Need some ankle mobility ideas? Start Here.
