Variety is key with loading your tendons, so today I wanted to show you some another exercise which works your Achilles tendon, whilst eccentrically (lengthening) loading it. This exercise also has the beauty of adding what we call a proprioception (Balance) component.

Things you need to know!

1)      You need to ensure that your exercise is correct, resist the common temptation to accept “shot cuts” like injections or surgery.

2)      Tendinopathy rarely improves long term with only passive treatments.

Give them a go, start small, 2 sets of 3-4 reps and slowly increase the number of repetitions.
