Experiment with Exaggerated Foot Shape
Note how the lower two images illustrate the improved connection through the athlete’s body. Arrows indicate the locations of foot shape exaggerations
From the book:
We found that when intentionally changing/ exaggerating foot positions to activate and stimulate source points, the individual becomes increasingly able to consciously trigger, the feeling of stressful tugging along the myofascial meridians. As a result, the sense of exaggerated foot position becomes easier to access in training. Although initially tested as a training method for athletes seeking to improve “connection” and power, regular practice of the technique translates into other activities, such as walking and running.
