    Arch

    What are some good exercises or things to do to work on my arch. My flexibility is bad, but any kind of increase would be beneficial.

    Here is an awesome video by Jay Fry showing how to help increase your arch. I hope this helps.

    thanks again guys! I k new i had posted something like that awhile back..i know buddy's video (thanks buddy) helped alot and i'll combine that with the jay video and see how much more I can get out of it. It IS something that needs to be trained daily. I can see the difference from not doing so.
