Flat Feet Correction – Training The Feet With The Core

Flat Feet Correction – Training The Feet With The Core

How do I fix my flat feet? This is a question I get all the time in person and on social media. Addressing something like a flat foot can be easy or difficult, depending on how many distortions a person has in their body. Most of the time, a flat foot is an issue with people who have a completely disconnective upper body from their lower body. That’s what I am going to focus on today. The connection we are going to form here will involve the Posterior Oblique Sling


Although this connection of muscles does not appear to have relation to a flat foot, it’s actually very important for it. If you follow the Anatomy Trains system, that the foot connects to glutes and lats via myofascial force transmission (muscle to muscle connections. Ofcourse the foot is has tons of ligaments that do not connect muscles to muscles, but the tension on those ligaments is completely dependent on balance within muscles like your Tibialis Anterior, Gastrocnemius, Soleus, Flexor Hallucis, Flexor Digitorum Longus, Tibialis Posterior. Those muscles greatly depend on larger muscles like the Glutes and Lats. Point being that it’s all connected.

In this video I showcase a new approach to connecting your movements that has never been seen before.

    I’m a personal trainer in South Florida with specialties in corrective exercises. I found this technique to be very interesting and will be giving it a try myself and with several clients.

    Thanks Naudi!

      Hey David,

      Thanks for the comment and interest in Functional Patterns. Use a search engine and search for Resistance bands, the one used in this video is in the lower range of resistance.

    Hi Naudi and team,

    Thank you for sharing your amazing stuff. Just a quick question on the practice as a whole. I enjoy doing a lot of the kettle bell stuff you put up but also body weight exercises, monkey walk, pull ups, handstands (at least try) and all that stuff. The main reason for the body weight stuff though is due to the little 5 year boy/monkey i have who loves to crawl, roll, twist through small gaps and climb trees as well as my back and head lol. I guess my point is, i’ve heard you say that a lot of that body weight stuff comes as a by product of your practice without necessarily focusing to much on it like for e.g. ido portal and GMB fitness to name a few. I know that’s not the plain you want to focus on, more our evolutionary movement but i just wondered whether you avoid them because you can do them or you do do them, but just not as much as your main stuff. Not gonna lie, trying to do both is starting to hurt more than it should, just wanna be strong enough vertical and horizontal. I know you’re busy and would appreciate any reply from you guys.
    I know you enjoy wim hofs method and i loved your interview with him by the way as well.
    Keep kicking ass!

    Hello Naudi,

    Thanks for sharing this video. I just have a simple question. How should we balance the use of the band? I mean should we use the band the same time on left and right side, or should we try to use the feedback mechanism firstly in one side until we see some results?
