Finding Neutral during Weight Bearing Exercises: A Wonderful Video by Dr Emily Splichal

Finding Neutral is incredibly important for properly lining up your feet and legs for bipedal (both feel on the ground) activities like gym workouts. The video below by Dr. Emily Splichal focuses mainly on the barefoot pronated position. However, this is just as important for those of you who supinate too much. Being able to center your weight with fairly equal weight on your heel, first metatarsal and fifth metatarsal can be incredibly important to a well grounded position. We called it being well stacked up, where in the ideal world the foot is properly under the ankle, the ankle under the knee, and the knee under the hip.
