Upper hamstring tendon pain is a common condition experienced in runners and weight lifters. The pain is usually felt at the bottom on the glute area where the hamstrings attach to the pelvis. This blog post will discuss what causes upper hamstring tendon pain (commonly referred to as proximal hamstring tendinopathy) and how to treat it.
The squat is one of the best whole body exercises that you can do. It challenges the overall mobility and stability of the entire body. There is a common misconception with the squat that there is an “ideal squat.” Traditionally the ideal squat consisted of the feet planted straight forward, knees tracking over the 2nd toe, chest up, and the head looking straight ahead. Unfortunately, this advice does not suit everyone because we are all built slightly different. This blog post will discuss how to figure out what is limiting your squat as well as how to determine what the best squatting pattern is for your body.
