Ninja Ankle Mobility Drill Helps With Reverse VH
Handy Drill for the Reverse VH
You will look like a Ninja when you do this one and what team doesn’t want a Ninja goaltender? Am I right?
Does anyone else feel like either their ankle or their knee is going to snap when they use the RVH or is it just the seven of you who email me every month to say that it does?
If you are nodding your head and your knee and ankle are sore just thinking about it, then I suggest you give this a try.
You will do about three on each leg and the key is to stay low in your hips – although we are focusing on the ankle here, you can see from the video that you are actually working through range with your knee and hip too, right?
So, stay low in your hips and make sure you keep that foot flat. Move smoothly from one position to the next (you are a Ninja after all).
That’s it! Enjoy.
