    Awesome video, you can definitely tell you guys devote a significant amount of your time to EBP and practical application in the clinic. I'm always very appreciative of you guys!

    Yes! I always worried about my knee valgus during squat and it created fear in me. I spent so much time in "activating glute medius" and I was hesitant to increase the load of my squat. Thank you for sharing great helpful informative video. Always appreciate your evidence based contents. Thank you.

    Nice video, really informative as usual! One thing I noticed is that you mentioned knees tracking in line with the toes and foot, but I've seen people squatting with their knees tracking slightly outwards and over the toes, with their feet in a more neutral position and they seem to have less knee valgus. What's your opinion on this?

      Typically they have the same knee valgus twitch when the effort level is high, it's usually just a matter of how much rotation they have at their ankle to allow for that kind of positioning.

    Absolutely outstanding video - My stance on Valgus has changed after this video. I didn't think it was as terrible as most rehab providers say, but this was an excellent presentation. Thanks buddy.

    This video is very interesting! To be well informed on the risks caused by wrong motions is highly valuable and knowing the right way is very helpful, not only for people doing sports like lifting weighs but also for those who have to perform physical activities the whole day long.

    Hello Sam, based of the video it seems like hip strength may have been overrated with knee valgus. With patients in the clinic that present with weak hip abductors, ER, glutes, do you think I should focus on increasing hip strength or ankle ROM primarily if they are dealing with excessive valgus? Thanks!

    • E3 Rehab
      E3 Rehab  4 miesięcy temu +2

      If they do present with measured hip weakness, it's totally reasonable to work on that. Working on doing ankle movements to enhance mobility would be beneficial as well!

    Excellent, excellent video! Probably the best strength training channel as it includes very important anatophysiological information!

    Great info, thank you! Would be interested in your thoughts on knee valgus in 1-leg squat (Bulgarian, pistol, or kickstand squats)

    • E3 Rehab

      Depending upon how valgus is being defined, it'll often be unavoidable. Given the nature of the balance requirements for those movements, it's often going to be a necessity to have the hip shifted over and the knee in an adducted position relative to the hip, making valgus a pretty easy occurrence.

    Thanks for the video!
    Similar thing happens to my gf when I try to teach her the bounding run drill - it was a surprise to me, but this is completely hard for her to do as she’s having this knee valgus at every step so the movement is performed in a very unnatural way, with low amplitude. I’ll give her exercises from this video and hope that we’ll have this fixed. Peace and love!

    very interesting! I've always taught people to avoid knee valgus by following toes with knees

    • E3 Rehab
      E3 Rehab  4 miesięcy temu +1

      Totally reasonable to follow that as a general advice!

    Great video, however regards the external foot position, surely this is anatomy and/or mobility dependent - if there is a mobility/strength deficit, this can be worked on, whereas anatomy cannot?
    Would it be good to mention? - epidemiology studies show females tend to compared to males have a greater q-angle, which increases the likelihood of knee valgus/abduction - thus greater susceptibility to ACL sprain in sport.
    Great channel 👏🏼

      Thanks Sid! It's likely going to have some individuality to it as there will always be that with just about any measure. However to say it's a mobility/strength deficit vs anatomy is really hard as they can often be difficult to discern between.

    What are your guys’ opinions on neck bridges? I’d love to see a video about it at some point

    But I must ask, does the knee valgus not increase the risk for a lower back injury?

    • E3 Rehab
      E3 Rehab  4 miesięcy temu

      There's no research to suggest that it does. Is there a reason you'd see that it would?

    Hi Sam! What if our athlete has knee valgus during plyometrics? What should we do???
    Thank you

      That's a huge topic! It would be valuable to follow the similar line of logic around the topic of timing, angle, stress, etc. Then you can also consider the progression of stress for it to enhance the load tolerance for it as we do have research the ACL can hypertrophy. I hope to do a video dedicated to that topic in the future as it's complicated

    Just from a basic architectural stand point it would benefit any human being to correct this especially if lifting heavy loads.

      That would take away from the premise. You don't necessarily need to "fix" it, in fact most people probably shouldn't.
