Had a great question in last week about ankles
There are an area that takes a hell of a pounding and need a lot of looking after
This is what he asked
Hi guys, really enjoy the content, avid follower/member.
I feel like I use it wisely and have helped numerous bowlers with it all, thanks so much for it, you do a great job in helping many.
I have one bowler who has a nice action, packed on some pace over 18 months, but towards the end of the season (southern hemisphere) he had some discomfort in around the ankle/achilles area.
He told me he landed awkwardly.
The physio has said he has ankle impingement.
Apart from the depth jump, what other exercises are good in terms of strength/flexibility for all the tendons/achilles around the ankle.
Any help always appreciated.
Now ankle impingement is tricky
We have a manipulation routine we do around the head of calcaneus, then some banded distraction and movement flow around the ankle as a prehab drill (all in inner circle)
Then we get the jumps going, get them out of shoes so the feet are working and keep away from wearing flip flops
This one is definitely an all of the time thing though, the feet get a hammering so really need to keep on top
Like most things its about getting them moving well and getting strength and stability in the places it needs it
In the winters get them on different surfaces and out of shoes, the achillies gets lazy so make them work
We want the tendons to be nice and strong too, remember prevention is better than cure
In the Inner Circle we have the whole ankle health video
