Strengthening Ankle and Foot: Isolating A Weaker Muscle
Here is a question from my video on YouTube on Ankle/Foot Strengthening (see the video below).
Why did you ask her to stop when she started to substitute?
A typical example is the marathon runner who comes in knee pain. You test his muscle strength and all muscles in his lower extremities are strong except for some weak quads. You isolate the quads in your strengthening program, gradually build up the strength, and they return to running with no knee pain.
