      Is there such a thing as “too much” external rotation?  I’ve gotta believe that at some point it can be a problem right?

      I was recently at a seminar with Jesse Burdick and Mark Bell and they told me I might have too much “knee-out-ness.”  I wonder if “knees out” for hyper mobile folks could fall in to the “good cues gone bad” category.

      Yes, there are different focuses for the hyper mobile.
      Improved motor control and sliding surface mobs are used.

      Should you feel twisting in the knees at all? To start with I felt like when screwing my feet into the ground I had a twisting pressure in the knees that didn’t feel right. It isn’t as bad anymore so maybe I was over rotating or not rotating a the hips.

      Same here, thought about that a few minutes ago.

      I think painful twisting indicates something’s tight in the leg, either hip, adductor, fascia around the knee, or ankle rotation. Everything should rotate out together.
