Hip Impingement, Pinch and Pain During Squat | Movement Mondays | Ep 3
In this episode we look at anatomy vs mobility in the squat. People often feel a pinch, or pain in the front of the hip during a squat, or even lowering into a chair – this can be limited by your hip anatomy OR a mobility restriction. Unfortunately we cannot change our anatomy, what we have is what we have, but what we can do is modify our exercises and form to optimize our mechanics. We can modify our foot angle, the width of or stance and of course the depth. Remember, you are unique, train to your body.
If mobility is the limiting factor, this is a great video for you.
Standing knee to chest. Can you get your knee over your belly button?
The Captain Morgan – With your knee elevated, bend from your knee to drop your bum closer to the ground, forcing your hip into increased hip flexion. Keep your knee straight over your toes as you press it up towards the sky. OR Laying on your back, pull your knee in towards your chest.
