    ^^^ I have always wondered if there was a connection between my massive butt and my constant barefoot walking.

    Apparently yes

    I don,t think my issue is a lack of strength. Rather it is fore aft mobility. I have worked on squats with my feet together and have been (lamely and half assedly) working toward pistols. I have difficulty getting the weighting right and being able to keep my feet flat on the floor while in the down positioof a pistol. Thoughts on how to improve that mobility?

    Balancing exercises are good for your ankles and feet. Though you have to be careful with them, if done wrongly you might hurt more than you cure…
    Also walking on a beach barefooted works miracles.
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

    Keeping your weight back in your heels will help but if you find yourself coming up on to your toes you most likely have very tight calves so you're going to need to do some serious stretching.

    Beach running, definitely. Gorbags stuff was pretty well bang on. I'll sometimes do calf raises without my legs at lockout and some flex in the knee to keep the Achilles activated. Lateral strengthening is tricky to drill for without sand or snow, though. A workmate has a mini bosu ball used upside down for rehab after tendon tears. Not sure how effective it is, but he likes it.
