Ankle Mobility
This article from Hudson River CrossFit covers the 4 ranges of motion of the ankle and the problems in performance that poor mobility leads to.

“Having full range of motion in all 4 directions is crucial for optimal performance and injury prevention.  Having dysfunction in any of these directions will cause a loss of form, promote poor movement patterns and put stress onto but not limited to your: knee, hips, and back.” Essentially the ankles are the bottom of the pyramid in mobility.
Some causes that are common for most people are sitting in a chair all day, shoe composition (heels) and lack of attention to mobilizing them.
Ankle flexibility can be improved with a few simple stretches.  Check out Kelly Starrett’s MWOD to test your ankles and to see how to work on mobilizing them.
