This is one of my favourite footwork exercises to do.
We spend a lot of time thinking about the planta (ball) and tacón (heel) of the foot but we also need to think about the big joint that is just above the foot - the ankle (tobillo).
For accurate fast footwork you need to have both strength and mobility.
Strength we attain by working and exercising the muscles and the foot (legs and the rest of the body).
Mobility which refers to the ability to move or be moved freely and easily, we get this by doing exercises that encourage the use of a range of motion that we need for the movements we want to do.
This exercise has a bit of both.
