Description

Building a better base and a solid platform for human movement is paramount to achieving higher levels of performance. Learn about the suspension of the lower leg and how myofascial compression techniques (MCT) can be used so that optimal movement of the foot and lower leg can occur. See how you can free the foot for proper muscle activation and allow the optimization of the eccentric force of the rear foot for improved speed, agility and quickness.
