Absolute gold. I watched this tniikhng (sigh, simple looking) but following my goal of being open-minded, I tried the move. I was stunned at the activation I felt in my hip flexors!!!! This especially since I routinely work on mobility of the hip to the point where my knee pain is a thing of the past. When I did the move alone I thought I was good. I had a friend observe and he nuked me stating I had a compensatory forward lean. Revenge was sweet as I had him a chronic knee pain guy try the move and he was almost unable to even assume the position. I wound up showing him the knee/hip mobility drill Eric Cressey shows in his MM DVD and I do believe we’ve found a source of his knee problem. My friend is a flight nurse (I’m a flight paramedic) and was lamenting his inability to work out anymore due to his knee problems, and I do believe he’ll find that he workout days are truly within reach by executing these simple maneuvers. Thanks for the good intel Mike & all those of you who’re cutting edge in this fitness world!
