Do you struggle with linking toes to bar in Crossfit?
Maybe your problem doesn’t lie within you “weak core” but in your feet!
I had a Crossfit athlete come in to see me recently with dramatic core weakness. There was certainly no trunk stability or inter abdominal being generated or maintained.
After doing an in-depth intake we decided to investigate a niggling L big toe that was injured 2 years prior doing handstand walks at a Crossfit comp.
Testing the clients TVA and L quad we found a very down regulated TVA and L VIM and Rectus Femoris.
This down regulation was all brought back to full strength after we decompressed their L big toe.
Using NKT protocol to identify the dysfunctional structures that were keeping the big toe compression, I used Dry Needling to release the facilitated tissue. We then did a sustained decompression on the joint.
This immediately brought neural connectivity back to the TVA, VIM and Rec Fem.
This athlete as some simple correcting to do however they should make a massive improvement as long as they don’t jam their big toe into the bar every time they do T2B again.
