I’ve been following the daily MWOD for a few months now and my problem has not changed.
When I sit, either on the floor or in a chair, my torso rotates to the left. Another way of saying it would be my belly button points toward my left knee.
I’ve found that my hips shift further toward my right side in the squat and am not sure if this is a result. I’m looking for some suggestions or some advise.

Your hips could be out of alignment.
Have you seen a chiropractor?
What you have been addressing isn’t where the problem originates which is why you haven’t seen improvements in your situation.

I’ve been to a chiropractor a few times but have seen no improvement so I’ve stopped going.

If you sit for long periods the hip flexors and rotators can become tight while the glutes become weak.
This can impact gait,
posture, spinal stability, and movement patterns.
Are you missing hip flexion?

J Cooper, have you found anything that has helped? I have the exact same problem and have struggled for many years to find anything that actually is corrective.

I would look at the trunk. Kelly just did a video about the trunk today. You can use a 10 day free trial if you are not a subscriber to search the newest videos. Look for all the videos about the trunk and go from there. Do a little bit every day and then make sure to focus on not letting yourself rotate to the left when you are sitting. As far as the shift in the squat, I would also look at things like reactive neuromuscular training (RNT) to work on correcting shifts.I’m sure you can find some explanations of how it works on you tube. Adding single leg work to your programming is also important.Travis JewettMWOD Staff
