well Joakim I can't either, yet, BUT I can squat deeper than ever, with no pain with this foot orientation.

I've also reclaimed 20 degree of ROM in a knee that hasn't bent more than 85 deg in twenty years with just 4 weeks of mobility work with this drill! good enough for me!

Excellent Chef you are an inspiration for all of us who are on the path back to normal mobility =)
Since you showed me the Youtube page i am working hard to gain mobility and i will succeed =)

I'm with you Riff. Playing with KStarr's stuff, I have found my hips, especially internal rotators, to be so tight. This is what has been limiting my squat and causing me to turn out the feet. Like you, I am on a heavy diet of mobility work. Someday, I will squat with straight forward feet!!!

matt, I can't believe how much his stuff is helping me and FAST. I am working on my foot forward squat pattern and have regained 15 degrees + of ROM after 20 years with a knee that would't bend more than 85 deg and an ankle stuck at -5 deg dorsiflexion!

really understanding the relationships of all the bones, how to align them, the crucialness of torque and where to direct the squat pattern has changed almost everything overnight!

there is just so much material to study,lol!

To obtain gold wonderful has been a arguable problem withWOW Gold or WoW gamers. Possibly the largest Mmog on a global scale, Wow comes with an far more than one million paying users in North America on your personal. Cheap WOW Gold is Globe of Warcraft s unit of foreign currency.In spite of the fact that you’ll find coaching sites to show players the methods of earning completely cost-free WOW Gold for sale, a majority would rather get gold wonderful to advance their very own virtual status in the game.
