Some thoughts on hip flexion strength and knee pain

June 22, 2018

Mike Reinold ran a post about the importance of hip flexion strength when it comes to knee pain. He mentions hip flexion strength is often lacking in people with patellofemoral pain (knee cap pain) issues and how to assess hip flexion strength. I want to expound on this and talk about how to strengthen the hip […]

About once a month I update my testimonials page. There is a lot of debate in the fitness world, but it’s hard to argue with results. The more results, the better! There is no better way for people to assess whether someone knows what they’re talking about then to hear it from others. Here are some from the […]

This turned into a behemoth of a post. I started writing this on the plane ride home and well, the cute girl next to me could only distract me so much. Next thing I know I had 15 pages. (Remember in college how you had trouble writing 10 pages, double spaced? Weird.) There is a […]

There are various reasons someone might want to shorten their stride. Trying to land less on your heel and more on the mid-foot is a common one.

I’m a fan of the site Doctor Skeptic. The thesis of the site being a lot of the treatments we perform are ineffective when measured against placebo. That we aren’t doing enough research to see how many treatments fit under this umbrella. That the ethical considerations here are hypocritical. “It’s not ethical to do a study […]

On structural adaptation limitations (of the hip)

One of the most repeated questions I’ve received the last couple of years deals with wanting to change human structure. This has been primarily related to hip retroversion, due to a post of mine on the topic. Despite my efforts, the point of hip retroversion being a structural “issue” hasn’t hit home for many. In that it’s […]
