Having good foot control is paramount for proper absorption of ground reactive forces during walking, jogging and jumping. A stable foot directly contributes to the postural control of the knee, hip and lower back, and vice versa. Strengthening the foot, hip, or core musculature to the exclusion of the other is therefore addressing only part of the problem and will yeild less than satisfactory results. We must integrate the top to bottom and bottom to top to create a stable foundation for functional movement. In this video I demonstrate a series of exercises to improve strength and control of the foot, hip and core in a single leg stance. Check it out!
