Creating a Stable Low Back with Better Hip Mechanics | Community Video

Knees Out | Deadlift | Low Back Pain

Hey MWodies,

Today’s mission is a good example of solving a very common low back problem by changing some hip mechanic motor control cues.  Turns out, creating a stable, high torque hip position creates a ton of mechanical stability for the pelvis (and by extension the lumbar spine).


In This Video: Kelly discusses how to maintain stability in the hip, pelvis and lumbar spine with the knees out cue.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they’re talking about online. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.|

    Thank you for this video & info! I have struggled with the same issue of overarching my back ever since I’ve started to work out. Needless to say, I have always seemed to struggle with some lower back tension after going heavy on squats & deads. Can’t wait to try this out!
