I've come to the conclusion that an excessive overpronation partly is a problem related to the weakness of the foot muscles and in particular:
- Intrinsic foot muscles (abductor hallucis, flexor digitorum brevis etc.)
- Weak posterior tibialis
- Weak anterior tibialis
- Weak peroneus longus
- Weak extrinsic foot muscles (flexor hallucis longus, flexor digitorum longus)
Now I need some guidance with exercises that strengthens these muscles. So far my plan is to:
- Transition to minimalist shoes for everyday wear(already made but haven't run in them yet)
- Various balance plate exercises
Balancing, throw a ball to a wall, squats, etc.
Is this enough to tackle all of the muscles mentioned above or do I need additional exercises/techniques?
