The Reaching Lunge

In SPI we use the reaching lunge both statically and dynamically quiet a bit, playing around with it using dumbbell, kettlebell and bands. It’s a wonderful exercise to work with as a regression of the Single Leg Deadlift.
So why do we love it?
Simply, it’s ability to train the hip hinge in a more single leg pattern, to enhance posterior chain strength and control and proprioception of the ankle.
For any athlete, strength of the glutes and hamstrings are vital. So try these easy steps to do the reaching lunge.
Give it a try today.

Plantar Pain

Commonly seen as pain in the heel (Plantar Pain) in the underside of the foot. Once thought of as an inflammatory issue, recently it has shown to be similar to the way a tendon overuse injury occurs. People get it with a sudden increase in running load, poor fitness levels, amongst other issues. It sounds all too common doesn’t it? 

But who cares? How do we solve the problem?

Strength training along with a progressive management of the exacerbating issue will really allow the symptoms to settle.
