Hi Kaitlin, thanks for the response.
Im currently on deployment and won’t have access to a coach for another 5 months.
I’ve been seeing improvements using the mobilization techniques for the “butt wink fault” and “overextension fault”.
Also stopping the heavy back squats has helped. I’m really focusing on performing the level 1 movements with perfect form.
However in these new positions my trunk is failing under any significant load and defaulting back to my poor movement patterns. Do you know of any auxiliary exercises I can program in to help increase my trunk stability and reinforce a neutral spine?
How do you feel about sit-ups, knees to elbows, toes to bar, planks, L-sits etc…? Will those exercise benefit my recovery or put unneeded stress on my trunk?
