      I have some trouble with my hip flexion, I am having trouble getting my upper body more than 90* in a pancake split.
      It feels like I am to tight in every muscle attached to the pelvis.
      I think I have good flexion in ankles and shoulders, so its my hip that gives me problems in OH Squats pistols etc.
      I can also feel tightness in my hamstrings and keep up the work on those.
      So I think it is the tilting of the pelvis that i need some help whit, any suggestions are appreciated.
      Best regards Tore

      i think this PRO episode is for you: 

      the two moves discussed are:
      set the femur joint into the back of the socket
      floss the hamstrings with distraction to the back

      give it a try – first before you mob, test the range of hip flexion with your favorite move- maybe bending over. then do the first mob on both sides. go back to your original test. can you bend over better?

      certainly organizing the torso is important, and being able to keep that tight while hinging over, so make sure you work on that as well.

      also work on general hip flexion also: hip openers, external and internal rotation.
