Current research shows that strengthening the small stabilizing muscles around the arch and plantar fascia can improve ankle stability and balance - but it's often neglected.

So I invited Matt Ferguson, the founder of AFX, on the Strength Running podcast to discuss several topics around foot strength:

  • How to build strength in these oft-neglected muscles
  • Mistakes to avoid and myths that can derail your progress
  • The value of being a "cautious minimalist"
  • How to choose shoes that are right for you personally

We also dive into the history of running shoes and why they look very different today than they did 40 years ago.

Enjoy!
