Supinated heel raises are a fantastic exercise designed to retrain the foot's natural ability to absorb impact forces and re-stabilize itself to create a solid base for force production. This process is crucial during movement, and while it should occur unconsciously, it first requires conscious effort to establish the correct patterns.
The beauty of supinated heel raises is that they can be performed almost anywhere, anytime. Whether you're waiting for the bus, waiting for the kettle to boil, or simply standing around, you can take the opportunity to perform a few repetitions. This not only helps to improve your foot mechanics but also turns idle time into productive training time.
By consistently incorporating this exercise into your daily routine, you're consciously building the correct foot patterns until they become deeply ingrained and automatic.
