Mobility At Your Desk Part 4

 

The “Mobility at your Desk” series was created to help people stay mobile when they are at work.  In this 10 week tutorial we will take you through 10 parts of the body that will only take 10 minutes a day to mobilize!



WEEK 4/10:  FOOT MOBILITY AT YOUR DESK

This is one of the easiest exercises to do at your desk, and your feet will thank you!  Whether it’s plantar fasciitis or just foot pain, this release will quickly become one of your favorites!  We suggest beginning with the Level 1 Acumobility Ball and advancing to the Level 2 Acumobility Ball when ready!


WHAT YOU NEED:  2 Acumobility Balls, oil


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Single Ball:  While seated and without shoes, apply a downward pressure to the ball starting at the heel and working your way to the toes.  When you find a tender spot, you can apply deeper pressure by standing up.  We also demonstrate 2 calf stretches.  The first one you are standing and lock out your knee and lean forward to release the gastroc muscle of the calf.  The second stretch is the same except you then bend your knee while leaning forward to stretch the soleus muscle of the calf.

  1. Advanced with oil:  To advance the release, apply oil to the bottom of the foot and top of the ball.  Then roll your foot over the ball while applying downward pressure.  This release is amazing!!!

MOBILITY TIME:  4 minutes Total including- Forearm, Tricept, Neck, Foot


*Always consult a physician before beginning a new exercise, massage, mobility regimen.
