Kaitlin: I’ve most certainly been working upstream especially, though admittedly not as much as I used to. “Pigeon posing” and similar ext. + flex. hip mobs are tough for me but doable. It’s just hard for me to make progress with my right leg due to this knee issue. Left hip is dealing with some sort of impingement, but that’s a story for another thread.

It’s similar to what was mentioned in this morning’s DailyRX, actually: http://www.mobilitywod.com/daily/tuesday-march-18th-2014/ In the cross-legged hip stretch, he mentions ways to unload the leg and knee if you’re gapping the LCL, which is exactly what’s happening with me, but Kelly never quite discusses how to address that issue. It is simply a tight hip, and the resulting lack of torque is being pushed through the knee instead?
