Breathing During Exercise, Femoral Anteversion, and Assessment Priorities – Movement Debrief Episode 49

Movement Debrief Episode 49 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • When should you breathe during exercise?
  • Are there times in which breath holding is warranted?
  • What is femoral anteversion?
  • Is there a way to test for femoral anteversion?
  • What treatment considerations must one make for femoral anteversion?
  • In what testing order do I chase variability?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook or Instagram.They air every Wednesday at 7pm CST.

Breathing During Exercise

Femoral Anteversion

Assessment Priorities


  1. Another dope show Zac. When assessing the limitations in hip extension, are you using the Obers test to do this? would you suggest using the Thomas if in doubt? Chur!

    1. Hey my guy!

      I use Obers to test hip extension. I find Thomas to be less practical and reliable…can have people extend in the Thomas, but not in the obers.

      1. Ok interesting. So you are just watching for the point when their lumbar starts extending in the Obers? I will have practice that : )

        1. There is that, but also some people you cannot physically pull into 0 degrees extension. If you block the pelvis this should give you a true appreciation for hip extension.
