Movement Debrief Episode 58 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:
- Should narrow ISA people who have increased kyphosis reach forward?
- What should each reach be used to improve?
- What type of drills should I program when trying to improve hip extension?
- When should I choose an activity with the hip more flexed versus the hip more extended?
- Is stretching bad?
- Does stretching work?
and the audio version…
Here were the links I mentioned:

Below is a picture of the attachments for the gluteus maximus. As you can see, has a much closer distal attachment to the hip joint, thus have better leverage at terminal hip extension.
Check out this video below of gluteus maximus gait. You can see how an individual who lack glute contractile capabilties relies on hamstrings to extend, and has to lever the femur anteriorly (video courtesy of Chris Kirtley)
Here are two moves that I use with narrow ISA peeps to restore hip extension:
Here are two moves I use with wide ISA peeps to restore hip extension:
Here is #1:
This would be #2
For either a wide or a narrow, this is my terminal move:
