Do you Pronate or Supinate?
Posted on August 3rd, 2016 to Barefoot Training
At Pedestal, we recognize that the feet are the most neglected part of the training regimen. Both Brendan and I were lucky enough to have top coaches that made us take our shoes off upon entering their facility. Since that day, it really boils my blood when I see people doing movements in the gym in traditional running shoes. Some of these people even do so under the watchful gaze of their “trainer”.
One of our biggest blessings that we have here is our access to a great network of top coaches who get our mission and truly want to help. Over the past couple months, Dr. Joel Seedman (http://www.advancedhumanperformance.com/) has worked with us to come up with a Pedestal Program for our network.
Our goal in doing this was two-fold. First, we want to educate our consumer/market (although a lot of our customers are coaches themselves). Secondly we want to provide a solution to the question, “These are great, but now what?”.

Personally, my favorite exercise is the Bulgarian Squat with Kettlebell Swap (https://vimeo.com/173094426). We hope you can incorporate some of these exercises on your journey to optimal foot and ankle health!
