Weakness on my right side of internal oblique and TVA is likely causing my right side pelvis to be unstable and move excessively in the frontal and sagital plane. This creates stress on the IT band quads and patella due to improper load transfer. I am looking for specific exercises to address this problem by strengthening the right internal oblique and TVA. One such exercise I have found from functional patterns Naudi Aguilar. The exercises is a staggered stance resistance band isometric hold focusing on antirotation (the resistance band goes across the body with the right leg planted infront and left leg behind in position similar to a lunge but more upright)
