I'm a fan of the P90X workout program from the Beachbody company, and recently, they just released a new workout called Insanity which claims to burn 1000 calories a workout.

Well... I did the first workout called Plyometrics (jump training) and when I finished I noticed pain in the left arch of my foot.

Long story short, stupid me aggitated the plantar fascia in my left tootsie. These exercises made it feel better. Thanks. I'm going to link to this article on my site.

Caio!

Sorry, I got to the 1000 calories and fainted. Had to recover for a few minutes before I could read the rest lol. I'm battling capsulitis in my right foot currently - the stretch band and the golf ball exercise have helped soooo much!

I learned a lot about these tips a few years ago when I was training for figure skating. After an hour or two of practice in seriously tight boots, these exercises were great for getting the blood pumping back into my numb feet again. Thanks for posting for others! But I do have a question! Earlier this summer I was wearing brand new tango shoes (high heels) for a long weekend that totaled about 15 hours of dance/standing on my feet. Since then two of my toes remain numb no matter what exercises I do. Apparently it's something called compression neuropathy. Anyone ever had that happen?? Exercise suggestions? So far my traditional foot exercises haven't been working. I'd certainly hate to give up tango!

Sara - I tried to send a message through your profile but I'm not sure that worked. Just wanted to tell you to consult with a physical therapist (through your doctor). I've heard it's a fairly common condition - but PT seems to be the way to make a difference.
