Weightlifting shoes, the best investment a lifter can make.
· Allow you to apply more force to the ground (GRF)
· Raised heel, forcing the tibia into an advantageous position (forward) causing increased range of motion (ROM) through the ankles. (Ass to grass baby)
· Better body position= ability to keep a tight core and strong lifting base.
· Provide a stable platform, the solid heel will minimize medial and lateral movements which can be seen when using a standard cross trainer shoe.
Obviously for the more serious lifter, but they do make a difference and can lead to putting up some impressive figures. What are your thoughts?
