This month we are going to finish off with some of the more important structures in the
knee and start off an extremely complex piece of the puzzle that will take a few months to get into, especially when we get into the squat report as there are so many pieces to take into consideration, I am very happy to split off the squat report into two separate weeks. The hip is our cradle. Its where the upper body connects to the lower body and it is partially where some of the most complex musculature processes happen. It’s no wonder, and no coincidence, why it has the most powerful muscles that we have in our bodies.
Next week we are going to finish off the knee with the ligaments that hold it together, now I normally wouldn’t add ligaments, but these four ligaments are so important to knee function that I cannot ignore them. You will see why next week when I explain them in Anatomy 101.
In the following week I get into one of the more common injuries for the ACL/PCL and how to avoid ripping it.
The next two weeks, we leave the knee behind us and dive into the wonderful, and complex world of the hip. We are going to see what happens to your hip in flexion and then in extension. Now these are two very complex and intricate pieces to the squat puzzle and I really do need two separate weeks (blog posts) to explain them. I need more than two but with time constraints, two will do just fine.
I really do hope that you guys are coming to the appreciation of these blogs and that they are helping you out in whatever you may doing. If it wouldn’t be too much to ask as to get your feedback, just post a comment or two below or send us an email letting us know. We would love to hear from you.
