Last week I wrote post about the fibularis muscles formerly known as the peroneals. As I mentioned these are key muscles that tend to be underused or used incorrectly.
Walking and standing and doing yoga correctly employs these muscles as design and allows for a fully functioning body that is working on all cylinders.
When these muscles are tight or underused the body won’t be able to work as well as it should. For reasons I don’t understand these muscles don’t seem to be on the radar of most yoga teachers and bodyworkers (unless of course that is my incorrect assumption).
The video in this post offers a simple demonstration by palpating these muscles and then feeling them engage and disengage. It will hopefully offer insight into whether or not you are using these important muscles.
I have to add that I love that my son’s Thor Hammer is in the video.
