Lots of physio-speak in this M-wod video but it’s worth the time to diagnose the condition of your ankles.  We see many squats inhibited by poor ankle range of motion and this is one way to attack that bound up tissue.  The foot is your only contact patch with the ground when squatting so think about that when setting up for squats!

400M Row then
5 minutes ankle un-blocking with LAX ball per above video
NOTE: In this mobilization the ball is not on muscle tissue but is preventing the ankle from moving in a specific direction while you stretch the heel cord and plantar tissue.  The stretch is as much force as you can put on the joint with that range blocked.
