Avoid Unnecessary Injuries #1

Foundation Exercises for the Feet
Toe Articulation Warm

Caring for your feet it the first step in creating a healthy, balanced, and functional body.
Devoting as much time to your feet as you do to your workouts helps minimize the risk of injury.

Many running-related injuries, such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and calf-strain, can be avoided by performing these exercises on a regular basis.

If you are considering transitioning to a minimal or barefoot running style, these exercises are especially important to add to your regularly scheduled fitness routine.

The following, informal video, shows Personal Trainer and USA Track and Field (USATF) Certified Level 1 Coach, Melissa Adylia Calasanz of Controlled Burn Fitness, performing the first few foundation exercises for the feet from a Controlled Burn Fitness Class.

Apologies for the abrupt ending due to the late realization that the feet were out of the shot during the last exercise
