THE FOOT'S BLANK SLATE

THE FOOT'S BLANK SLATE

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER: LOCOMOTION

The foot is born to be a multi-jointed, mobile, strong, stable, wide, dense, thick, elastic part of the body, capable of handling thousands of steps, leaps and bounds of force per day and doing it incredibly efficiently.

 

Here are a few points to consider about the feet, with regards to having the independence to get yourself where you want to go...

A WIDER BASE OF SUPPORT

 

Simple science says, the wider the base of support, the more stability you have and the more stability you have the more strength you can express. Allowing your foot to splay repeatedly, into it's spade shape, in the simplest, of daily movements, such as walking, is of utmost importance. If you are interested in walking well the rest of your life and/or an athlete wanting to get the most power out of your push you'll want to maximize this element of the foot's design.

NATURAL TOE MOVEMENT

 

THE TOES WANT TO WORK!

 

THEY ARE A VITAL ELEMENT OF HOW THE BODY IS DESIGNED TO MOVE.

 

Our ability to transfer our bodyweight powerfully and gracefully forward is greatly dependent on the mobility, stability, strength and BREADTH of our toes.

 

When the foot's prime movers get to work, they provide joint stability so, for example, the GLUTE can do more work too.

ON CRAWLING, WALKING, RUNNING, HOPPING, SKIPPING, JUMPING, BOUNDING

 

As with any body part, the 33 joints of the foot not only need to be mobile, to function properly, they require some amount of muscular strength and stability to accomplish movements through their entire uninhibited range of motion. Regular use of the full, foot-health-promoting range of motion in the joints of the foot and ankle are crucial for the natural, efficient, powerful movements of walking, running, hopping, skipping, jumping and bounding.

 

It is important to note that each type of locomotion involves different impact forces which require varying degrees of strength and stability throughout the foot. It is capable. It must simply be utilized daily and trained up to to the level at which one desires to perform.
