One of the many, many things I’ve had wrong with me is single-sided gluteus medius muscle weakness in closed chain exercises. Basically, when I stand, I have a tendency to lean my weight into my right hip, overstretching those hip muscles and making them weak when it comes to things like standing on one foot.
Boring, I know.
But, check it out – pretty much all fitness clothing company ads have people standing exactly like that. I wonder if they’ll be headed to physical therapy soon…
It took me about five minutes to do this post. Because they pretty much all stand like that.
You – reading this. Try balancing your weight equally on both feet. Your balanced hips, knees, ankles, and feet will thank you for it later.
Stay hard core,
