Stupid Feet... How do I fix them?

Harlan Schulze 03-27-2013 06:20 PM

It could be a motor pattern thing, so try some foot work drills.

It could be your body working around a lack of range of motion (anywhere starting from the floor moving up into your upper body). A tight plantar surface can put your ankle in a bad position, putting the knee in a less than perfect position. Over time developing knee pain. The person then does drills to fix knee pain, but the root cause is the tight feet.

The problem can be upstream or downstream of where the pain is expressed.

It is probably a bit of both. So use all of Gregs awesome resources for training and use KStarrs Mobility WOD (free blog) to diagnose and fix your feet (and other body problems)

You can start here for feet: http://www.mobilitywod.com/?s=feet

Good luck!

Drop snatches. Is your problem that your right heel comes up in the bottom position?

I think my biggest problem is the big "donkey kick".

To be honest. That is not a donkey kick that just your full extension at the top. You really look great terry. If you stop the vid at 3 seconds you see the full extension.

Do some snatches where you don't move your feet at all. Start light and tell yourself that your feet can't move off of the ground at all. I mean, I wouldn't particularly worry about what you see as a donkey kick as much as I'd worry about landing on your toes, at least on your right foot.
