Product Review: SmartFlexx Foot Stretcher




written by runnergirl training

The SmartFlexx is a foot stretcher by FootSmart. It is helpful for plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis and also for stretching several other muscle groups. It is easy to use; you simply step on it!

I first used it in the morning before and after a run. Immediately, I felt a stretch in my calf, hamstring, and top of foot. Afterward, I noticed a lot of range of motion and less stiffness in those joints and muscles. Now I frequently use it after my workouts as part of my stretching routine. 

Here’s my recommendation on how to target stretching specific muscle groups. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds.

Hamstrings: Point toes up, push hips back & bend forward at hips

Foot muscles: Roll foot forward and backward on the device

Tibialis Anterior & top of foot muscles: Point toes down

Calf muscles: Bend knee and push heel down





Pros:
Easy to use
Portable
Effective
Keeps form correct
No skill required

Cons:
No lateral (side to side) stretching




The SmartFlexx stretcher is effective for increasing range of motion and decreasing muscle tightness. It is quick and easy to use for stretching. It also targets muscles which can be challenging to stretch. It assists you to keep correct stretching form. I highly recommend using the SmartFlexx stretcher as part of your health fitness routine!
