Are bunions really hereditary?

Are bunions really hereditary?

People who have bunion-like feet seem to be at an increased risk of developing painful and even debilitating conditions. Many doctors will tell you that their solution is arch support, inserts or surgery. You may be told the bunions is hereditary. But, what's the truth?

Researchers from Harvard have recently published a study on the heredity of bunions and found that it is highly among European Caucasians. 36% in over-65s are affected by this foot condition.

However, according to sports podiatrist Dr. Ray McClanahan, this study is ignoring an important factor. He says that the researchers failed to control for what footwear their subjects were wearing at any point during life and had worn over extended periods which could have impacted how much width was hereditable in these individuals feet.

Our culture has been so focused on the shape of children's and women's shoes that it is now pushing them into a bunion-causing position. Dr. Ray says this happens because our feet are getting pushed out by their pointy toes and narrow heel boxes, which forces you to walk with your toe pointing in towards yourself or else risk pain from rubbing against various surfaces as well as inflammation due increased friction along with a strictly limited range of motion. Especially women who have higher rates than men because their feet are narrower compared to masculinely shaped footwear options available today.

The contrast between the feet of traditional shod and unshod cultures is stark. The Indian research found higher rates of foot deformities among shod compared to unshod kids, while the German / South African study demonstrated that children who grow up without shoes have better movement skills and balance than those wearing them.

Traditional shoes that are both narrow and pointy aren’t good for our feet. They also have stiff soles which push the foot out of its natural alignment, and interfere with healthy development by pushing against one side only when walking or running on uneven surfaces like cobblestone paths in parks where there's no pavement to cushion the impact as you step forward momentum- putting extra pressure onto already tight muscles between your toes!

Going without shoes or with barefoot shoes can help you alleviate bunion conditions since traditional footwear isn’t shaped like feet and ends up making many people's feet look more like shoes. Barefoot footwear is an excellent way to get your feet back. It's foot-shaped, not shoe shaped and it gives you the freedom of movement that natural growth requires without restricting any muscles or joints for them to be flexible enough.

Are barefoot shoes good for high arches?

Are barefoot shoes good for high arches?

Barefooting means giving your feet a break and reconnecting you with the natural world. It might not be easy at first, but we think that anyone who’s considering switching to barefoot life should give it a try! The biggest barrier for people is high arches which can cause shin splints or other issues (we have tips on how to avoid these). However, if this sounds like something familiar then keep reading, in this blog, we will discuss:

What is high arche like?

How to treat high arche traditionally?

Is arch strength important?

How does going barefoot influence arch strength?

How to identify high arche?

High arches are easily identified by their footprint. You can tell if your arches are high just by looking at the footprint you make when stepping onto a piece of cardboard with wet feet. A person who has a relatively higher arch will only see their forefoot and heel imprinted in this case, while someone whose shoes fit comfortably above the ankle may notice an even broader shape along both sides near where they step down from it.

What's podiatrist's solution to high arches?

The foot is a complex device that holds up our body and walks with us through life, but it's also subject to many disorders. One such disorder can be high arches. The podiatrist's solution to high arches is usually expensive orthotics and 'supportive' shoes. However, these can be a problem because they actively weaken foot muscles which might cause more problems in the future when you need support for your feet!

Which is more important, foot strength or arch height?

With high arches, foot strength is important for lessening pain and inflammation. Stronger feet can better support your body's weight without being painful or having restricted movement. The problem is with inserts supporting this structure by immobilizing it instead of strengthening its muscles as you would want them to be. They will eventually weaken over time due to lack of use which causes other problems such as instability when walking or dancing!

Barefooting means using more muscles and tendons in your feet, including those near the arches. This is good for building strength. Using shorter strides will result in landing on mid/forefather than heels which helps strengthen these important parts of our body. So if you want stronger footsies then go ahead with wearing some bare-minimum footwear when walking or running!

Evidences justify being barefoot strengthen feet indeed.

The majority of research studies have shown that regular exposure to the natural environment can help children develop stronger feet and solve problems with their posture. For example, one study from India found that kids who went barefoot at school had wider feet than those wearing shoes regularly. This is because they were experiencing more stress on each foot during activity which caused them take steps forward instead turns inward like many people suffering from flat-footedness do. Another recent clinical trial conducted by Delaware University showed increased strength in arch height after just six weeks without any exercise equipment required! And lastly, an independent analysis out recently revealed how running shoeless reduces pronation when you put forth greater effort while respecting your body's needs.

It doesn't mean barefooting is right for everybody with high arches. But it is worth considering if you have a history of foot issues or are experiencing discomfort from your current shoes! We recommend two things: see an expert and take it slow when starting in bare feet paradise.

Can barefoot shoes prevent bunions?

Can barefoot shoes prevent bunions?

When it comes to bunions, you probably know all too well how they can hurt. But have you ever considered that barefoot footwear might help? In this blog, we discuss:

What are bunions?

What really causes bunions?

How to treat and prevent bunions?

How to diagnose bunions?

A bunion occurs when your big toe sticks out from its normal position and presses against smaller toes, sometimes overlapping with them to create an uncomfortable situation for both you and those around may notice that something's wrong as well!

Some symptoms can indicate bunions. You might notice an unusual amount or pressure on your big toe, as well as red skin and swelling near it due to increased circulation from friction against the shoe's fabric lining each time you wear them! If these things happen then be sure to check with a doctor right away because there is always surgery available if necessary.

What’s the causes of bunions?

An abnormal pressure that forces the big toe joint out of place can lead to painful bunions. This condition is most often caused by an inherited trait, but even ill-fitting shoes or a foot injury could have some contribution in causing symptoms that get worse over time without treatment. Leading eventually to this uncomfortable disorder called "bunion".

How can we treat and prevent bunions?

The first treatment for bunions is usually medication. It can be as simple and pain relieving, such as Ibuprofen or naproxen sodium (An GNU), to reduce the swelling in your feet caused by these annoying toe bones! If you have particularly severe cases where even this doesn't work out well then there's surgery available too, but we recommend talking with a podiatrist first.

It's difficult to live with bunions, but there are things you can do that will make the pain lessen:

Make sure your shoes fit right by getting them measured and buying inserts from a professional podiatrist if needed, so they don't worsen over time due to pressure on toes or bunions alike which should help reduce whatever form this takes!

Tape splinting (or even wearing) one toe. You also might consider this when it becomes painful because both ways may allow for some relief while still doing other activities such as playing sports.

Use inserts. Toe and bunion pain can be reduced by using inserts. Orthotics, also known as shoe inserts or insoles for your shoes that relieve pressure on the toes/bums of people who suffer from these two conditions.

Avoid activities that increase your pain. This might seem like a no-brainer, but it is sometimes tempting to soldier through an activity when doing things such as playing a sport which only increases the risk of developing further complications with these conditions in some cases!

Use cold ice. The cold ice pack on your bunion and big toe can reduce pain, and swelling from a benign tumor that's growing near the joint.

To prevent bunions, you need well-fitting footwear with plenty of toe room. This is where barefoot footwear can help. Barefoot footwear is foot-shaped, not shoe shaped. It's thin and flexible, so you can stretch out your feet with ease while walking or running without interference from shoes getting in the way!

Are barefoot shoes good for flat feet?

Are barefoot shoes good for flat feet?

When it comes to barefoot footwear, people are always confused about whether it is suitable for flat feet. To answer this question, in this blog, we explain:

What flat feet are?

What the evidence says about barefoot footwear and flat feet?

So, are you ready?

What are flat feet, exactly?

Having a flat foot is one of the most common disorders in humans. It’s typically painless and can be caused by genetics, injury or other lifestyle factors such as footwear choices you make for your daily life. A person's feet are considered “flat” when their inside arch has become horizontally opposed instead of being curved upward like normal arches do (we also have blogs on high-arched problems). However, this condition doesn't always leave patients feeling discomfort, some people may not know they suffer from it.

Some people think that because podiatry (the branch of medicine devoted to feet) often suggests insoles for supporting flat arches, they aren't able to use barefoot footwear. But we don’t believe this is true. The foot is the most powerful muscle in your body. Strong feet allow you to be more confident, active and healthier throughout life! Unfortunately, many people are living with weak or injured arches because their orthotics (insoles) restrict movement which limits blood flow and damages tissue. Leading them down an inevitable path toward chronic pain management instead of spinal strength building.

Barefooting means using the muscles and tendons in your feet, including arches. So if you want stronger feet then stick with a shoe that's not too high of heels for running or walking outside! Landing on them will be more towards mid forehead instead where there is less impact from heel striking which can help strengthen those aches we often experience when wearing shoes, especially at night time after long hours working computer minefields.

There is evidence suggesting barefoot is beneficial for flat feet.

The idea that going barefoot could help prevent and manage flat feet has been gaining momentum in recent years. More research is needed, but there's evidence pointing towards this as a possibility so far.

The research is clear: having strong feet can help you live a healthier lifestyle. When children in Manipal, India were studied by doctors from the University of Delaware and Harvard Medical School they found that those who walked barefoot at school had wider feet - an indication their arch was stronger than usual! Another study done by Corban university showed how running without shoes increases your chances for less pronation which may be beneficial if flat foot symptoms are present or wants to keep fit while focusing on other parts.

The idea that people with flat feet cannot go barefoot is outdated. The evidence shows they can and should try out this lifestyle! If you have this condition and are interested in barefoot living, we recommend two important things: see your specialist first to learn how it could benefit you or try slowing down at first so as not to alarm yourself too much when toes start tingling after being out of footwear for an extended period time frame.

Should we try out minimalist running?

Should we try out minimalist running?

Minimalist running is a way to reconnect with nature, your body and the natural world around you. The key lies in what’s on our feet: Minimalist runners shed all that extra padding or support while still wearing their shoes! But don't head out barefoot just yet because there are some things worth considering before taking off those cushioned soles...

Why we try out minimalist running?

Have you ever felt pain in your heel when running? It’s because traditional running shoes are ruining our feet. The solution to a lot of common problems runners face is down at least partly due to undoing how they often force us into unnatural positions that can lead to injuries and other health issues! Let's take look at heels for example - notice anything different? Our feet don't have elevated ones so how can you run intuitively with something that has no precedent within your own anatomy. It makes sense why people who wear them often report less comfortable experiences than those wearing unpowered footwear or barefoot runs.

Minimalist and barefoot running is great for your feet, as it gives them greater access to sensory information about the terrain. Barely wearing any shoes at all will make you feel more comfortable with how fast or slow things are going on different surfaces. There's also less weight burden upon yourself when trying out new trails that might be steep enough where normal sneakers won't do well...

How to start minimalist running?

The minimalist lifestyle is a process-often slow and involving. The best way to start out, if you have been wearing shoes most of your life? Learn how to walk before running barefoot!

There are different kinds of minimalist, and you can start to apply them in your daily life even if just walking around the house or outside. Just feel free wiggling our toes as we get reconnected with nature underneath us again, this is one way that starts making sense for people who live their lives indoors most days due to an apartment complex full time instead of being outdoors all hours during summer months.

When you wear minimalist shoes for more than just a few days, it can take time to get used to having your feet feel free and unencumbered. The first few hours after removing these types of footwear are usually the most difficult as they have been packed with vital muscles that haven’t received enough use over years spent wearing narrow rigid frames. However, this feeling should subside within one day after brief periods without them.

Minimalist running can be a great way to get in shape if you run regularly and want an injury-free body. There are many different ways that this type of exercise has helped people improve their overall fitness level, including improving the speed with less risk for stress on joints or else allowing them just enough time between runs, so they don't have sore muscles afterward due lackadaisical training habits like completing workouts quickly without paying attention while also helping alleviate boredom by keeping things interesting throughout each session. 

Is Zero Drop equal to Zero Cushioning?

Is Zero Drop equal to Zero Cushioning?

The fittest kids nowadays would be amongst the least fit from twenty years ago, according to a study by BBC and the University of Essex. It shows that one in five kids leaving primary school is overweight, while America has seen an increase recently with 2 - 5 year-olds who are obese or overweight.

There are two words that are common in daily life. Zero drop means there’s no height difference between your toes and heels. This term is often used in marketing because most people wear heeled shoes (8mm+). A traditional running shoe will have anywhere from 4 -14 mm drops. Zero cushioning means no cushions underneath your feet, only the absolute minimum necessary level of protection against weather and terrain. The idea is that a barefoot shoe should be constructed with as little padding as possible so you can feel what's going on around us all day long; feeling everything from rocks underfoot (or possibly just wet leaves) to pebbles shooting up at us when someone steps onto an uneven surface nearby! It also allows for increased sensitivity by removing any retainers in between our toes/pressure points.

So, what’s the difference? The most obvious distinction between Zero Drop and Zero Cushioning shoes is just that - cushioning! Even though both kinds of shoes are made to replicate how our feet function naturally, with zero-drop footwear you can still get a little extra padding while in the case of zero-cushioned models, there mustn't be any at all because by definition this type refers to eliminating soles from consideration which makes them closer physically possible without ditching apparel altogether except when wet or extremely cold weather conditions dictate otherwise.

Though there have been some studies that show traditional running shoes may make runners more prone to injury, no evidence shows this is down solely to the cushioning or heel-to-toe drop. As important as what type of shoe one wears when they go out for their run. It's also true how each individual runs matter just as much--the damaging "heel strike" style that these allow can be harmful to your body if done incorrectly without proper technique. But going without any footwear at all doesn't mean you'll automatically get an optimum barefoot 'style' either!

Barefooting it around the house is a great way to get in touch with your feet, but there are some things you should know before taking this leap. First off, barefoot movement takes time, so be prepared! It can also help if you're healthy and active because not only will that make them feel better while they recover from any injuries or ailments associated with wearing heels all day long-but more importantly for our purposes here: When we walk without shoes on solid ground (or even grass), it is easier than ever before research has shown us how much weight transferring comes naturally which means less effort needed during each step which ultimately saves energy.

Back to school with barefoot shoes

Back to school with barefoot shoes

Is it time to rethink our school shoes? The reasons are growing, as is the evidence that they affect students’ brains and bodies. And those stiff black shoes might not be so great for your feet after all!

A recent study found wearing poorly fitted orthopedic sneakers had many benefits over traditional sports injuries by providing more support where you need it most.

In a decade-long study by the University of Bournemouth, it was found that keeping shoes off kids’ feet in class helped them concentrate better and behave academically. Kids at schools all over Scandinavia remove their outdoor footwear for indoor slipper types inside, maybe because they're technologically advanced enough to keep things clean or preserve furniture.

Traditional school shoes are stiff, narrow and rigid. They don’t let their feet feel or move. Our feet have as many nerve-ending than our hands, ready to send sensory messages whizzing through growing brains! But all those hard surfaces block off feedback from the ground with each footstep! It's like putting on a cast that makes muscles weak while also inhibiting form or function. It would be better if kids could at least move around during those hours of learning. After all, the more they carry out their workouts and exercise inspiration from life's world.

The benefits of physical activity on children’s brain development have been well-established. A recent study by a group of American universities found that kids with higher fitness levels had larger hippocampi, which is linked to better relational memory performance. Another high school raised their heart rates right before classes they struggled and tested them again after only one semester, these students saw significant improvement in test scores! Dutch researchers also reported how 10 minutes per day spent playing active coordination games improved concentration skills among German adolescents who were participating in the same experiment as part.

Saguaro makes their barefoot shoes thin, wide and flexible so your child's feet can feel the ground as much like a natural occurrence. And kids who grow up regularly wearing no shoes have better-developed motor skills than those that wear traditional clothes all day long or go to school with one on. According to new research from German universities in South Africa, if they want their kids to develop nicely then I recommend taking off any type of trainers or athletic. You can help your kids be as barefoot as possible, and when going without shoes isn’t realistic, make their footwear minimalist.

Saguaro is committed to making sure your kids are moving and living their lives in a healthy way. We know that by choosing Saguaro shoes for school, you're helping them grow strong feet as well as treading lighter on our planet!

Let's run like kids

Let's run like kids

It's always fun to watch kids run. They run with an upright posture, knees under their hips and shoulders back while taking short steps that make them lightweight enough to be agile for quick turns or changes in direction when playing outside and never sluggish like adults! They have such an amazing way of keeping themselves smiling while running.

But what about the adults? We know how of us grown-ups are lucky enough to be born with natural running techniques, but why do we never use them anymore? More and more evidence points to the detrimental effect normal shoes might be playing in wrecking how we run. A recent study published in Nature magazine has shown the damaging effect cushioned running shoes can have on your body during a footrace or long-distance path, as it increases impact loading by up to 11%. This leads not only to stiffer legs but also increased risk of sustaining an injury!

Saguaro is all about giving kids a chance to be as natural and comfortable as possible. We believe that being barefoot or close enough will allow them this opportunity, so our stores carry only quality footwear for your little kid!

Growing up shoeless might be the key to a healthy foot. There are several studies that compare kids who wear shoes regularly with those Unshoed, and in every single one of them, there is an indicator for better overall health. Stronger feet due to less injury. Wider measurements indicate greater balance/coordination skills as well protection against birth defects such as flat-footedness or hammer toe thanks largely because they have broader spaces between their toes!

A recent study from two universities in South Africa and Germany found that kids who are regularly barefoot (the South African ones) scored better on balance, movement skills like coordination or flexibility. They also demonstrated increased levels of mental sharpness when compared to their shod counterparts, this may be due largely because they don't wear heavy shoes which restrict how well you can move around without tripping over something! Brazilian children are often seen playing football while Japanese ones practice martial arts, which require excellent balance skills as well as footwork, both requiring getting used to feeling each individual’s ground with every step you take in order not to fall or make any mistakes before taking your next action.

Kids who grow up moving, walking, playing and running without traditional shoes have the best chance at keeping their physicality. They will learn how to balance themselves well with less stress on small feet that are free from stiffness or pain caused by tight apparel.

Moving gives kids an opportunity for active play which aids in building skills such as agility because these positions require fast responses time after time while maintaining stability. You can help your kids be as barefoot as possible and when going without shoes really isn’t realistic, make their footwear minimalist, thin wide and bendy so feet grow closer to the feel of natural earth!

7 things you don't know about your feet

7 things you don't know about your feet

Did you know that your feet can continue to grow?
Even though they will settle at around age 20, the shape and size of our soles change over time. The average person will experience half an inch (or more!) in extra growth every 10 years after turning 40! It’s because as we age our bodies start shrinking and then filling with fluids until finally reaching their final form at about 75-80 years old. The human body is so amazing! When you become pregnant, your feet will grow slightly thanks to hormones and increased weight.
What's the best feet shape?
The shape of our feet is always changing, depending on what shoes we wear and where they’re from. Imagine if all your toes were the same length. It would be scary! The best foot shapes are natural, looking with strong muscles for movement, not shoe shaped at any point in time or inclined towards one side more than another as this may cause pain when walking due to uneven weight distribution.

What's the benefits of wearing shoes?
Have you ever thought about why your feet hurt when they are in shoes? It's because the design of these items was never intended for people with functional arches. We're all for taking off our shoes and giving your feet some much-needed rest. It's no surprise that since the invention of wearing footwear, we've lost touch with what a natural foot feels like! Shoes have distorted how you walk, they make it hurts more than helps. And in fact, healthily flattered by these devices has steadily dropped over time as well.
What's the point of wearing heels?
You may have heard that heels are bad for your feet. But you might be wondering why anyone would wear such cruel contraptions, especially when there is so much shoe technology out on today’s market offering superior comfort and cushioning. Heels can be damaging to your feet, as they increase the risk of spraining an ankle and developing arthritis. They also hit hardest on any part that is closest to ground level which could cause problems with shins or knees depending on how hard you walk in them!

Why shoe size is crucial?
Wearing the wrong shoe size can lead to problems beyond just discomfort. Woes caused by poorly fitted footwear may be more severe and carry a higher risk for serious foot issues, such as hammertoe or cramped toes where you cannot walk easily because of unnatural curling upwards at one end versus another which makes it harder on your joints when walking/running! A poor-fitting pair could also result in blisters, sometimes even popping out beneath your skin as well any number of smaller nasties like ingrown hairs from being rough with inappropriate material used during construction.

Did you know that most people wear the wrong shoe size?
It can be as high at 80% for men! The problem with this is not only does it look terrible, but also your feet suffer from pain and discomfort. Get yourself measured properly, so we don't see what damage wearing improper footwear brings to our favorite pair of shoes or boots.
Why being barefoot is necessary?
The modern-day lifestyle is stressful on our bodies and we often ignore the health of certain parts. One such area that deserves attention, even if you don't notice any issues right away or feel fine now can be your feet! When they're outta shoes, their muscles get a chance to stretch, which means when we go back into those tight fabrics everything hurts less because there's more blood flow going where needed most: Up towards our heads (and other important areas). Ditch 'em for some barefoot time, it'll do wonders.

Do kids need arch support?

Do kids need arch support?

The old-fashioned idea was that a child's foot needed help as it grew with hard soles, support and cushioning around the ankle. The theory behind this tradition is because babies born without arches have flat feet which means their toes bunch together or turn inwards, causing them pain when they walk on uneven surfaces such has tile floors during early childhood years. Therefore, children need propping up inside shoes to develop taller souls predecessors called arch supports.

People are always looking for the perfect shoe, but many don't know that their shoes can make them worse. Many feet problems such as fallen arches or flat-footedness come from wearing improper footwear which may cause pain in adulthood when moving around becomes difficult due to an inability of muscles used by our body constantly relying on its ability to move quickly across different surfaces.

The human foot has been evolving for several millennia and it would be a pretty significant system failure if our feet were so chronically weak. In reality, they're not! The truth is that we put them in inadequate shoe boxes which prevent their growth into healthy strong toes with wide spaces.

And it turns out kids may be better off without shoes! A recent study by two universities in South Africa and Germany found that regularly barefoot kids also scored higher than those wearing footwear when taking balance tests or motor skills assessments such as hopping across gaps. Our shoes have warped the pure architectural form of human gait, obstructing its engineering efficiency and afflicting it with strains. Dr. William A Rossi writes that "in only a few thousand years," we've come up with an instrument carelessly designed to fit our foot uniquely, the result being damaging effects on how humans walk from head to toe!

So, how does being barefoot help you grow stronger?

Babies are born with flat feet. Kids’ arches develop over time and as the foot grows, so do its bones. If these structures stay bunched up or unable to move, it's like they're trying in a restrictive cast! This can be especially true for arch support which helps give an elegant shape but doesn't allow space needed by muscles etc., leading towards improper development of our strongest construction type(the arch). An arcing structure acts much differently than supports. For example, anybody knows who has walked on wooden floors after walking around all day, you'll notice right away if there is no elastic recoil when taking steps.

For babies and kids, being barefoot is not just about the physicality of growing bodies but also how they use their blossoming awareness. Dr. Kacie Flegal who specializes in pediatrics writes that one way to motivate proprioceptive development is by letting our infant be as much without shoes or inserts because it allows them to develop their sense of balance. The opposite happens when we put on supportive footwear which tries so hard at helping children learn more than what's actually there already, you're shutting off your child's natural ability.

The solution to improving foot health starts with us and our kids. Letting them go barefoot as much, if not more than shoes are necessary for their natural movement. We think that footwear should provide minimal interference in the way your feet function which will allow you to have a strong flexible base from which all other aspects depend on. No arch support or padding just enough so it protects against climate changes/terrain mix up without limiting mobility too much.

Features of  barefoot shoes

Features of barefoot shoes

What are barefoot shoes? Often, people think that the term 'barefoot' means you can't wear socks with your shoes. The truth of the matter is socks are allowed! Bare feet have more to do with how comfortable and natural feeling they provide for runners who want an improved running experience without having any added weight or restriction on their stride length due out if it's too tight around certain areas like ankles etc. To help you find the perfect pair, we will explain what excellent barefoot shoes have in common.

Completely flat:

The many benefits of a flat shoe have been shown to help with balance and stability. Heeled shoes, even those that are only slightly higher than the average heel (such as tennis or running sneakers), push us forward while also causing our spine's different parts each having their own job in order not be imbalanced, this can result from being overworked here compared unfavorably opposed underworked elsewhere! Wearing zero-drop footwear helps align whole bodies properly without any need for compensation on account of the uncomfortable effects brought about by traditional heels.


Our feet take the shape of our shoes. So if you spend most of your time in pointy or squished-out footwear, it's only natural that over time this will cause bunions and other toe diseases! Maintaining a good posture while wearing flattering styles is crucial for preventing any future problems with foot health. Maintaining an upright position aids circulation by stimulating blood flow away from areas at risk like toes (which can become quite swollen), and towards more important parts like hands and brain during physical activity.


The foot is a complex and intricate muscle that must be used regularly, or it will waste away. Stiff shoes effectively bound by tight-fitting bindings cause pain in the arch of your feet, as those muscles become weak from not being utilized often enough to stay supple and strong. If you wear shoes that don’t move with your foot, then it will be harder for the intricate muscles of the feet to stay strong and supple. This can lead to pain as we age because these particular muscle groups become smaller over time unless they are used regularly, which means a limited amount of range of motion in certain areas!

No arch support:

With all the problems that flat feet can cause, you might be tempted to just get rid of them once and for good. But wearing support under your foot is actually worse than doing nothing at all! It locks up positions in which they should flatten out instead and this will make long-term health issues even worse down the line if left unchecked. "Weaning off arch supports takes time, but eventually, these individuals are much better placed when it comes to their overall well-being," says Dr. David Boxley from Harvard Medical School.

Secure to the foot:

The more you worry about your feet not being able to stay in one spot, the less efficient they become. This has ripple effects throughout all parts of our bodies as we expend energy trying to keep them from flying off or slipping around inside their shoe, which only causes us to grip harder on each step so that nothing happens! In conclusion: When walking with loose-fitting footwear (i.e., Flip Flops), there's always a risk something might happen, it could cause toes to pinch/slam against heels, etc. But once again this becomes an issue if the wearer doesn’t take care while moving.


We all know the importance of balancing. Our feet are an integral part of keeping us standing upright and mobile, but did you also realize how important your soles can be? A thin sole will allow for a better connection with what's below while preventing nerves from making movements seem like they're out-of-control, this helps prevent stumbled steps or slips up during everyday life!


Get started in anaerobic, with five crucial tips

Get started in anaerobic, with five crucial tips

Anaerobic is a great way to improve your strength, appearance and athleticism. However, there are a few things you need to keep in mind if you want to get the most out of your workouts. Here are some essential tips for anaerobic:

Make sure you warm up before each workout.

One of the main reasons why warming up is so important is that it helps prevent injuries. When you warm up, you are essentially preparing your body for the upcoming physical activity. This means that your muscles are better able to handle the stress of exercise and are less likely to get injured in the process. Another reason warming up is important is that it can help improve your performance. A good warm-up will increase your heart rate and blood flow to your muscles, which means they will be better prepared for future workouts. This will allow you to improve your strength and endurance during your workout.

Focus on one movement at a time.

The best way to learn anaerobic exercise indeed is to take it one step at a time. And you don't want to lose momentum! So focus on just one movement now (maybe pull-ups or push-ups) and then keep working on it when you have the motivation, but only if you are patient and break each exercise down into smaller parts so that you feel progress before moving on to a new challenge.

Anaerobic is more than just bodybuilding.

It's an art form that requires mobility and flexibility to succeed. 60% of your workouts should be focused on improving these skills, as they prevent you from developing poor technique, which can cause problems later on when trying new moves or even achieving your goals. My favorite exercise doesn't make sense without its counterpart: the handstand leads to the balancing act of lying flat on the floor, this requires precision as well as good balance, so it challenges both areas.

Drill for a solid foundation.

Anaerobic is about developing balance and endurance. The more you can do, the better! That's why exercises such as push-ups/pull-ups (or any other bodyweight exercise), dips and even planks should be part of your routine. They will help build strength in the upper body and strength in the lower body so that when one muscle group starts to feel fatigued during a workout, the other area is not activated, thanks in large part to its effect on accessory muscle groups such as the abdominals of the exercise. So, go ahead!

It takes time to develop complex anaerobic skills.

Listen to your body and take the time. Small goals are important because it helps you understand what works for you, while also being mindful of injury limitations. No one should train while injured. When you are injured or unwell, stop immediately, no one will laugh at you.

That's all, still sitting around? Get out and start exercising!
