And I am rolling them for 15 minutes daily on lacrosse balls. Stretching, I am doing a lot of stretching too.
In addition to that, I have to sleep with night splints on. These are basically hard casts that go from my toes, along the bottom of my feet, up to my knee. I place my feet and legs in them and then wrap them with ace bandage. My foot is in a constant stretched position, all night long.
For someone who sleeps naked, this is a very, very uncomfortable event, let me tell you!
But, one of my issues for years has been very tight calves and poor dorsi-flexion, these night splints seem to be solving the issue! I can now drop down to the ground, right into a squat, almost like a child!
Below you can see the progression as I wrap my feet and legs up before bedtime, this is a nightly ritual now for four very long weeks!
10 nights down, 18 to go! then watch me squat!
