I was very happy with this handstand press from the floor, and back down to croc, but that’s not what this post is about. Watch to the end and you’ll see me roll my ankle pretty badly, and yet I’m not injured at all. This is because I train in what is called the ‘dark zone’ a term coined by @garyward_aim. We’ve all heard the term ‘knee over toe’ and most people I know use high ankle hiking boots to stabilise their ankles and feet while hiking. But these ideas can actually cause more harm than good, because in the real world these ideals cannot be maintained, and your knees, feet and ankles can end up in all kinds of crazy positions. So instead of only allowing them to move in one direction, try putting them outside their comfort zone let them experience what it’s like to be in different positions so that when it happens unexpectedly, your body is ready. If you are interested in seeing some of the ways I let my knees, ankles, feet, and the rest of my body experience movements outside their comfort zone in a safe way then I will make a post about it in the next few days 👍👍👍 . . . . #naturalmovement  #movementcoach  #movementculture  #movement  #training  #injuryprevention  #handstand  #croc  #ninjawarrior  #barefoot  #parkour

    Yeah I'm interested in that! I used to roll them loads before I started trail running. Still do it occasionally but generally nothing bad comes of it, but I do have a lot of scar tissue there still. Interested to see how you train them. Going to Backyard Jam again this year I hope?
