Okay, so I am doing Kelly’s deep squat of 10 minutes daily. I am trying to improve my hip mobility overall.
My problem with this exercise is that when I attempt to put my feet straight my tendons hurt around my knees start hurting. Kelly says in the video that it is lack of mobility in the hips. But I am able to move my hips in a circular motion like he prescribes in the video. How can I achieve the straight foot position ? Should I be doing lacrosse ball on quad before doing this excercise ?
Feet turned out when squatting typically indicates missing internal rotation of the femur in flexion.
