How to get your feet straight during the deep squat stretch?

Christine M asked how she could get her feet to stay flat during the deep squat like she see’s her teammates doing.

Here’s my answer:

It’s most likely because one or a combination of the following are tight:  your butt, your hip flexors or your calves.

Perform the following 5minute stretch routine on a daily basis:

1.  Roll the bottom of your foot with a lax or tennis ball x30sec

2.  Straight leg calf stretch x 30sec

3.  Bent knee calf stretch x 30sec

4.  1/2 kneeling rectus stretch x 30sec

5.  Prone glute push x 30sec
