Competitive Gymnasts often need a Foot Stretcher to stretch and strengthen the upper arch of the foot for correct positioning of the feet and toes in Acro Gymnastics, Floor, Beam, Bars and Ring Events. A common upper arch exercise is performed by having a coach or instructor hold down the foot, pressed to the floor, while the individual lowers the back of the leg toward the floor, stretching the upper arch of the foot. This is difficult for a single competitor to do without some assistance. It may also be painful as the heel is pressed against the hard floor. Serious Gymnasts will spend thousands of dollars each year on lessons, coaching, gym time and equipment to help improve their technique. For just a few dollars, you can have the SuperiorArch®, the best Foot Stretcher and Arch Stretcher for Gymnasts available anywhere!
The foot and the upper arch are often overlooked when it comes to warm-up, stretching and exercise routines. The competitive arch comes from correct stretching and strengthening exercises which are critical components to successful training. The foot is a highly complex and delicate structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Before starting any serious stretching or exercise routine, including using the SuperiorArch®, consult your coach, instructor or other qualified professional.
