FHL & FHB strengthening

We use this movement for 2 main reasons:

1. to strength the 2 muscles that keep the big toe and the big toe joint on the ground

2. to help increase the stability of the foot

Golden rule: Keep your whole foot on the ground at all times throughout this movement

You should feel it: In the inside of your arch, under the sole of the foot or inside the ankle. You may even feel it in the calf

Tips and tricks: Maintain the height of your arch when you are pressing your big toe down.

Video: this is of the exercise on the right side. If you are doing the left just switch over
