      Hello all. I’ve been hammering the Olympic lifts lately and front squatting more regularly lately. All is well except for tightness and on/off pain at the back of the pelvis. Hard to describe where, but it’s further over toward the hips (on both sides) than the QL, but yet not right on the hip capsule. And it’s above the glutes. Yeah, I know this description isn’t precise! 

      I’m guessing some kind of lunge-based banded distraction will do the trick, but which of K-Star’s variations would hit that area? And will my green band (Rogue) provide enough resistance, or do I need to invest in the black band like Roop and K-Star sometimes use? 
      Thanks in advance for the wisdom.

      Sounds like its in the TFL the Tensor Fascia Lata.

      What would you suggest if it is the TFL?
