Weightlifting is not typically a high impact sport – but it can still place your feet and lower limbs under intense strain, especially if you are prone to poor form, suffer from overpronation or supination, or have an existing foot condition that’s causing you to shift your weight unevenly during your sets.
The insoles from OrthoSole slip easily and effortlessly into your training shoes to provide unrivalled support and cushioning to the areas of your feet that need it the most. Read on to learn more about how our insoles can help weightlifters like you alleviate pressure on their feet and absorb excess shock from regular workouts.
Why are shoe insoles important for weightlifters?
Great foot posture and foot function are extremely important for weight training. If you’re not pushing off from a stable base, you’re going to be placing unnecessary stress on your feet, ankles, knees and the rest of your musculoskeletal system, not to mention opening yourself up to all kinds of injuries.
Wearing our weightlifting insoles will help to keep many common problems at bay, including back strain, knee pain, and stress to the neck and the spine.
Shoe insoles are a real game-changer for weightlifters who have collapsed arches, too. Flat feet lack the structural support that prevents them from collapsing into the ground and causing irregular twisting in the ankles and shins. Orthotic insoles work to correct these poor foot mechanics by cushioning the undersides of the feet and providing a strong, secure foundation for the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons that keep us moving flexibly and efficiently.
How our insoles can help
Wear OrthoSole insoles during your weight training activities, and you will benefit from:
The self-customisable arch pieces and metatarsal pads incorporated into our insoles have been expertly placed to ensure they provide enhanced structural support to the feet.
You can create your own combination of Light, Medium and Firm pads to achieve a fit that feels 100% comfortable.
Our weightlifting insoles bring the feet and ankles into better alignment for a healthier posture and reduced stress on the lower part of your body.
Forget sore, throbbing feet at the end of every workout! OrthoSole insoles protect the balls of the feet from excess strain. The breathable fabric also keeps feet cool, dry and odour-free.
The enhanced support and stability provided by our insoles will add strength to every lift, encouraging better form and setting you well on your way to smashing your PB.
