Hope everyone had a great holiday, happy new year! No real change after implementing the exercises above. Just noticing some things that I need to seem to work on. Lateral knee pain and tightness came back after two long days ski touring in deep snow. When I’m doing stir the pot I usually try to do 3 sets, one set consists of stirring 5 times one way then 5 times the opposite way. After 2 sets of these I find that my core shuts down and I start feeling it in my lower back. As soon as I start to feel it in my lower back I stop the exercise. Going in for an FMS screen just to see if they can point out something that I don’t know already.
