This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the half kneeling ankle mobility drill courtesy of Sons of Strength.

You should do this because– you spend a lot of time in shoes and that’s okay. However, your ankle can get restricted and it’s not able to move as freely as it should.

Makes your everyday life easier because– good ankle and hip mobility will make your knee and lower back happier campers.  Because if the movement doesn’t come from your ankle/hip, you will get unnecessary movement from your knees and lower back. And that’s an injury waiting to happen.

Form tips – This exercise can done in front of a wall too. Get into a good half kneeling position and make sure your front foot stays planted on the floor as you rock forward. Do 8 reps on each side daily.
