< This mobility exercise is awesome for runners. It can aid with plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon issues, shin splints, calf tightness, and tightness in the feet and toes.
Using 1 Acumobility ball and 1 floss band apply the floss band at about 50% intensity and remove in 30-45 seconds or sooner if your foot/toes start to feel numb. Apply the floss starting at the ankle and working towards the knee. Then in a standing position begin stretching the big toe against the ball in a knee drive position. Then put the plantar fascia on the ball and while you apply a downward pressure work your toes through flexion and extension. Then remove the floss and feel the blood start flowing!
