5 Mobility Exercises for Triathletes

Heel Cord (Ball Whack)

Perform this movement by placing a ball on the side of your Achilles tendon (heel cord), both inside and outside, and flick the ball firmly off (like you're strumming a guitar string). This will cause a momentary "injury" which will result in increased blood flow to the area and improved flexibility of the surfaces. This movement improves ankle range of motion.
