Nathan,

It’s difficult to be precise with these sorts of things without seeing you in person but here are some general ideas.

1.  On the left side explore your hip flexors.  Rectus femoris, psoas, tensor fascia latae.  Google em.  Mobilize em.  Couch stretch is a good start.  Bias the hip.  Make sure your butt is on or you’ll default to an overextension pattern.  Also, check out your left quadratus lumborum (QL) Kelly has posted about this a few times in the last few weeks.

2.  Explore your extensors on the right.  Check out those hammies and adductors.  Remember when you mobilize those puppies that they are 3D, not planar.  Find the angles that show you Jesus.

Hope that helps.
