Correcting a “Swerve” Caused by Hip Imbalance During Squats Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest by Tay Gabbidon | Sep 12, 2019 | Blog, Exercises - Legs, Science, Videos | 0 comments Correcting Hip Swerve During Squats Experiencing a swivel, or swerve, caused by a muscular imbalance in the hips, is a common issue that can affect the rhythm of your squats and risk injury. The root of the problem is normally tight hip flexors (mainly the iliopsoas muscles), adductors, abductors, a weak gluteus muscle, or a combination of several of the above. Therefore it is also wise to incorporate stretches that target those muscles along with single leg exercises, such as Bulgarian squats, lunges, box step ups, etc. In this video, I will give you a cool training hack that can be used during squats to help correct the problem, but before getting to this point I recommend going through a few weeks of glute activation to make sure that you are able to squat with proper form using full range of motion. You can see my previous videos on glute activation here: https://www.facebook.com/109702409042483/posts/2675933132419385?sfns=xmo https://www.facebook.com/109702409042483/posts/2677393972273301?sfns=xmo Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
