Move Better Monday: Closed Chain Ankle CARs

When it comes to mobility training, we should perform Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) in both opened chain and closed chain positions. Closed chain CARs are movements where the feet or hand are in a fixated position with the floor.

Today's video, which covers closed chain ankle CARs, is a good example of how people should use the floor to learn how to dissociate joints. With closed chain ankle CARs, the ground contact we're making provides feedback, which allows us to differentiate foot movement from ankle movement.
