Voluntary Muscle Contractions, Building Fitness During Rehab, and Hip Pain During Squats – Movement Debrief Episode 96

Movement Debrief Episode 96 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:

  • Do I use voluntary muscle contractions during my exercises?
  • When is it useful, and when is it not?
  • Why is it useful to pursue fitness when rehabilitating an injury or with persistent pain?
  • Why would hip pain occur during squats if the femurs fall into internal rotation?
  • How could a bench press with a high arch negatively impact this?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook They air every Wednesday at 8:30pm CST. Enjoy!
