🧠Strength and durability can be layered onto the Achilles tendon in both a direct and indirect fashion. Direct examples are when you are trying to load that area in a solo mission. Indirect examples are when you load that area along with other areas of your body (i.e., knees) being loaded simultaneously. ⠀ 👣Either way, let's start getting your Achilles strong, durable and resilient to the stressors and demands being placed on it in sports that include high volumes of jumping, landing, cutting and the like. ⠀ 🎯Direct Loading: ⠀ 1. KB Seated 1-Leg Heel Raise Iso ⠀ 2. SSB Hatfield Elevated Standing Heel Raise w/ 3s Eccentric ⠀ 🎯Indirect Loading: ⠀ 1. DB Heels-Up Split Squat ⠀ 2. DB Floating Heel FFE Split Squat
