A few days ago, I shared a video regarding knee stability on Facebook.
I had asked for help in terms of increasing likes and comments on that post.
In turn I would follow it up with another technique to do my part in spreading relevant knowledge into the world.
The number of likes I asked for were 1,250.
Everyone responded amazing, so here is yet another useful technique to help you with your knee stability.
Transcript: Knee Stability – Here is a technique that actually helps this problem
Hey what’s up guys? I wanted to make a video as a followup to all of you who want to drop in all those likes on that post a few days back it was with regard to a knee stability. I asked for 1,250 like and you guys surpassed what I was asking for. We got to about 1,277. If you guys can do the same for this post, I will make yet another video regarding whatever topic you guys like. If I don’t get any specific request, I’ll make another one on stabilizing the knees, once again. I’m here to follow through on my promise and I’ll show you guys what we’re going to be covering.
First and foremost, we’re going to be utilizing a feedback. I know I’ve shown you guys a few things with feedback mechanisms using bands before, I’m going to show you guys how to apply this a bit better with your training in general (knee stability). What you’re going to do, we’re going to be working on connecting your abductor. This is generally a problem that people have with their body whenever they have issues with knee stability, their abductors don’t contract on medial aspect of their thigh to support the medical aspect of the knee. So, oftentimes maybe you’ll find people maybe they squat and their knees kind of bow out or they fall in, it usually relates to some degree of lack of connectivity happening in the abductors. Of course, what I’m going to be doing is not only going to be involving the rotation of the femur but it’s also going to involve rotation of the pelvis based upon where I’m going to be anchoring this thing.
Lack of rotation of the femur and pelvis oftentimes end up leading to a lot of problems with the knee joint itself. Just realize that the knee, most of the time, with you is not the problem, it’s everything around the knee that’s the problem. Many people talk about this, very few people show you how to apply changes to this other than just telling you to move your knee back out and they just tell you to put a band around your knees and do this kind of stuff. That’s not going to solve your problem. We need to unify more variables in order to make changes on the body.
When we unify more variables, eventually you see global shifts and this is why you see results in functional patterns that you wouldn’t typically see out of other training systems.
Let me just get on with this. What you’re going to need, you can do this at home, you don’t really need a gym or anything like that. You need this band. You’re going to step through with one foot, you’re going to wrap this across your backside, one of them, beneath the gluteal fold, one of them above the sacrum, the top of the sacrum level. Then, you are going to bring this band all the way around your thigh … I believe I may have shown this either here or on Instagram. I’m just going to show you guys how you can apply this because this is really important. Knowing how you’re going to apply is going to determine whether you’re going to do this effectively.
We’re going to actually take this into what I like to call deep lunge. This is a position that generally speaking if you were on the Savanna … Everybody’s obsessed with the deep squats, say you know we got to keep ourselves in a deep squat which is relevant … I’m not bagging on the deep squat at all, I just think it’s greatly overrated and in opposition to this position, right? This is something that you see a lot of times even out of, even when I’ve watch documentaries or if I even look at people, I’ve gone out to Mexico, you tend to notice people tend to sit in this position here when they talk to somebody.
One can imagine that if they were sitting in this position like this, they would be setting themselves up to sprint, maybe throwing something. This is a very, very explosive position, you can generate a lot of force from this position (knee stability). Just mainly based up on the fact that you’re actually in a unilateral stance. When you’re in a deep squat, you’re in a bilateral stance, you can’t really initiate a lot of force, you have to kind of roll back and then go forward, you have to stand up and then run forward.
When you’re in deep lunch, like I am here, that changes the game completely. Now, I can actually go into a full sprint from that position. So, we’re going to cover some of just a basic aspects of this motion here.
First and foremost, we’re just going to start from a bilateral stance here. I’m going to be doing that there just giving you guys kind of a side view. My feet are about hip width apart. I’m going to take my step forward and all I’m going to focus on is because my knee, based up on how the band is placed on me, is I’m going to feel like it needs to rotate out. All you’re going to do is fight that band to rotate your femur inward to reposition the knee while you step in. Really you’re going to have to consciously engage your brain with this band here and that’s eventually going to leave you to internally rotating in creating the form of stability (knee stability) between this rotation of the pelvis and that knee joint.
See as I do that, there’s two motions involved with one another, I take my step forward and then I drop down into that lunge. I keep most of my weight on my lead foot here, so my lead foot is going to be dragging back on the ground. Then, from there, what am I going to do? Stand up. You just repeat this process, you come down, thinking about fighting that rotation of the band inward this way and with the femur and the pelvis and you repeat that process until the cows produce the milk. (knee stability)
Anyway guys, that’s the video (knee stability) that I have so far. If you guys drop me, get another 1,250 likes on this post, I will be sure to reciprocate that with some more information like this. You guys pick a topic, if not I’ll do something else on the knees or I’ll pick something else that you guys might like. Be on the lookout for more videos (knee stability) here in the near future.
