Yeah, but are you totally convinced it is only a joint capsule issue, Michael?
Some people above posted some ideas for tissues to address that you haven’t seemed to target yet, with some solid rationale on why you should try that.
Also, two minutes per side ALMOST daily might not be enough work to move things along very quickly, especially if it’s a bad issue for you. Also, also, if you move poorly, you’re probably just reinforcing all the tissue issues.
Go back to Kaitlin’s first response and answer her questions. When do you find your lack of internal rotation is a problem? What skills or exercises does it limit? How will you know when you’ve made a change, functionally?
If your mobility-focused approach continues to yield poor results, then the issue might not stem from that, joint capsules aside. Take a good, hard look at your own movement, especially in lunges, squats, and deadlifts. If you don’t have a deep enough understanding of what could be wrong with your movement, find someone who does to watch you. Post video of you doing some of those movements, if you can, and we can hopefully offer some insight.
