I’ve recently noticed that I have a glute imbalance. When I go into hip extension my left route goes soft. I try to contract it as hard as I can with no luck.
I have constantly worked on hip mobility so that shouldn’t be an issue. I am guessing it is just pure strength related. How do you get this muscle firing properly as well as build up strength.
On a moblity note is I am wondering if I lack hip internal rotation
My left gluteals were not firing nearly as strong as the right side. I eventually found out that my quads and hip flexors were extremely tight and inhibiting this. After a ton of quad smashing, voodooing and couch stretching my left side was back on par.
i too have a left glute problem – much less tension generated than the right.
You may be receiving like answers to your question.
How you are addressing the situation may be hitting the symptom, but not address the root cause of the issue. If the cause isn’t addressed it will continue to occur.
So seems like the answer is more of the same.
I do a lot of the anterior hip mobs because I know sitting so long causes havoc.
I have at times felt a bit of a burning sensation when doing the anterior hip lunge in the left side
David which are your favorite internal rotation mobilizations?
The mobs that worked for me are:
Hey David, #2 might just become my favorite mob yet. I can definitely feel it freeing up my hip.
Nope – that one came from a session with Roop. He showed me a bunch of internal rotation mobs, some I had saw before and some not like this one.
I’d didn’t understand what you mean with the 2nd one. I’ve got terrible internal rotation on one of my legs and help with this is appreciated. That one seems like a good one from what you guys said.
Any other gems not on kellys site David? You are pretty lucky to be working with them you know
ha yeah i live in the SF Bay so there are great resources here!
Thanks for your nice words.
I’ve known Kelly for a number of years, stayed on top of episodes since day 1, and attended multiple Movement and Mobility Seminars.
I don’t have a separate organized list of the mwods.
Yes, there are alot of episodes, but I work with the material on a continual basis so it is familiar.
If I had something else I would share it, but I don’t.
