This movement is very important in BJJ as one of the ways to preemptively defend against leg locks. Also known as “putting on the boot”. Training with 10thplanetpasadenaeramey101compellapatrickdonabedian, you better bet I’m doing these every day.
Mostly all of the clients I’ve trained including pro athletes lacked ankle dorsiflexion. Lacking ankle dorsiflexion can affect your squat depth and has also been associated with chronic low back pain. (see study below)
