FIVE MOVES TO STRENGTHEN YOUR FEET AND STAMP OUT MUSCLE IMBALANCES

WORKOUT

Strengthening of the feet is the most neglected aspect of training in all sport. The strength of your feet provides the base of most of your daily movements. Weak feet mean a weak base of power; a lack of force with which to launch movement from, and that compromises speed. It also contributes to instability within the joints and muscle weakness in the calves, glutes, hip muscles, quadriceps, hamstrings and the lower back.

Below are a group of exercises that address the needs of all the muscles and tendons in your feet. They should be done every other day so as to allow recovery, growth and adaptation. All should be performed barefoot on either a carpet, rubber gym floor, grass lawn or AstroTurf.

About Men's Running

New to running? The February issue of Men’s Running is tailor-made for you. If, like many, your decision to dust the cobwebs off your trainers was driven by Christmas guilt, then signing up to a race, several months down the line, is an excellent way to keep that new-year motivation running high. And for that, our Ultimate Race Guide is a good place to start. Featuring 100 of the UK’s – and indeed the world’s – premier running events, you’re guaranteed to find a race that takes your fancy. And here’s hoping it will mark the start of a long and event-full running journey. It's not all about racing, of course, as proved by MR debutant Matt Buck, who embarked on a self-supported run along Portugal's stunning and appropriately named Historical Way. And of course there’s the usual blend of seasonal training advice, exclusive reviews, witty race reports and nutrition know-how – all of which, we hope, can help you make 2018 your best running year yet.
