@optimize.physiotherapy - Mike Gauvreau | Barefoot strength training βœ”οΈ
⬇️
The foot is your foundation. The human body must balance its mass over two small bases of support we call feet. The foot arch is what allows us to distribute load and maintain balance/stability over these small bases of support.
πŸ‘£
An arch indicates balance and stability. When you require stability on the ground, your arches are like a compass that tell you how well you are positioning yourself and using your neuro-musculoskeletal system to keep your body balanced over your feet.
⬇️
Strength training while barefoot allows you to hone in on arch integrity.
β€’ It cuts out all of the barriers to being able to use and organize your arches most efficiently (narrow shoes, padded shoes, unstable shoes, β€˜supportive’ shoes etc.)
β€’ It also allows you to be highly MINDFUL of how you are using your feet. You can actually see your feet and arches, and how well you are using them. You can feel the ground and how your feet are gripping and interacting with it for stability.
β€’ You can stabilize and root to the floor more efficiently, accessing the muscles in your feet and ankles better.
πŸ”‘ All of this leads to greater potential. It allows for greater stability, and greater force production as a result. It also allows you to build your foot strength and function in the process.
βœ… Train barefoot, be mindful of your feet and arches, and work to maintain them when you want stability during movements and exercises.

@optimize.physiotherapy preach my man! the state of people’s feet is getting worse and worse, we need more barefoot time πŸ’ͺ
@yoga50.mel
I had plantar fasciitis and the way i got rid of it was to go barefoot 90% of my day - i worked out barefoot to strengthen my glutes and did yoga and a lot of myofascial rolling . unfortunately hi tech sneakers have made our feet lazy - take them off go barefoot!

@nycfootdoc
Barefoot training definitely has its time and place, but one shouldn’t just dive into it! slow progression is key!
