Arch Landings

The goal of this tutorial is to teach individuals how to effectively absorb impact forces when the foot collides with the ground. This is crucial during activities such as jumping, running, changing direction quickly, and any other movement that requires the body to decelerate.

Most injuries occur during this deceleration process. For instance, while running, the body lands on each foot with a force equivalent to 3 to 4 times the body's weight due to gravitational acceleration. The feet are the first line of defense in absorbing these impacts and set the stage for how the body deals with these forces.

This exercise primarily focuses on building the tolerance within the feet to handle these types of braking forces. By strengthening your feet, you can better manage these impacts, reducing the risk of injury and improving your overall performance.
