did you get any resolution to this? I also experience a similar pain at the back of my knee when trying to do this. The only thing that seems to work is to put my leg fully up on the box and then try to put it into external rotation
not sure where exactly on the inside of your left knee you feel some pain. but the adductors do attach there, as does the sartorius coming across the quad, and VMO and medial hamstring.
Thanks for the response, for me at least I feel a pain or strain at the very back of the knee (i.e. at the crease if that make sense?) when I put my left leg in exterior rotation. I’m trying to do the figure 4 stretch at my desk during the day as I’m nearly sitting down all day.
I I have very poor range on my left side so maybe just need to work on the things you’ve mentioned above i.e. hip openers and smashing glutes, adductors etc.
Anyway I’ll work through those first and see if it helps.
Actually forgot to add yes if you can send on any recommended smashing and banded hip openers that would be great!
do you have a PRO account? all the good stuff is only viewable via PRO!
Hi, David. Thanks for the replies.
Hmm how are you foam rolling? I would recommend going across your quad versus rolling lengthwise, meaning you should find a tight spot on your quad, then rock your quad back and forth slowly on that spot (ie. the pressure wave). this is instead of rolling the quad up and down it lengthwise. you can also pause on a tight spot and contract/relax to see if you can get that area to soften up, and also tack and floss by stopping on a tight spot and then moving the lower leg.
Thanks, David. I’ll take a look at the videos, but watching the first one it seems to be my exact problem!
