Are you hips out of alignment?
You may need a hip adjustment from a chiro.
Have you had a coach or training partner what you squat or video tape yourself squatting so you can see exactly what is going on.
When you get use to doing a skill with deviations from ideal technique doing it with proper technique will seem weird. Breaking any habit is tough, however, keep working with it.
What is your hip and ankle mobility like?
Squat Quick Test: Is it Tight Ankles or Tight Hips? | Community Video
Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure if they are out of alignment – maybe I should see a chiropractor and check that out. It really does seem like its some kind of tightness though. A lot of times when I get to a pretty deep point in my squat, I feel some type of tightness pulling my leg a bit more in and then into a little bit of impingement. I’ll check out that video you linked. Thanks again.
Yes, I would get it checked out.
If your hips are out of alignment compensations which you may or may not be aware of are happening.
Things can go on tension early which could be the tightness you are feeling.
Is your psoas tight?
Psoas was really tight but I did tissue work on it early January and hasn’t been tight since. I’ve basically been doing tissue work and stretching since then – overall hip tightness has gotten significantly better, but the misalignment is still there. Just booked a chiropractor appointment!
Good to hear you are seeing improvements with the work you are doing.
Look forward to hearing how things are progressing.
Consistency is key which you are seeing.
