For the hips I have not looked up/downstream at all. I just watched the big engine webcast which explained a lot so I am just now getting a understanding of what could be causing some problems. Do you know if Kelly may be doing any more of the webcasts going into detail on other areas ?
For the hamstrings I have been trying to spend about 30-40 minutes every other day as well as the hips. I was focusing more on my psoas, iliacus, and ql to try and fix the back issue.
The feet I have been using a lacrosse ball, they are much better but still trying to work on the ankles they are pretty stiff. I cant seem to get dorsal flexion range. I loosened a lot of the tacked down skin on the achilles tendon which opened some range up but still not as much as I need. Not sure if the tight hamstrings are effecting this as well, I’m sure they are.
Question with the gut smashing is it safe/ok to come across the spine or do I just want to smash on either side of the spine ?
