Key points to focus on:
✔️ FRONT LEG: knee over ankle
✔️ BACK LEG: knee stacked under hip, shoulder and ear

Gluteal muscles (our bum muscles) are often tight from a specific workout, activity or from long durations sitting.

Check out these videos where Dr. Sly demonstrates how to foam roll these muscles to help loosen them up.

Other areas of your body, such as the joints in your lower back, have to compensate if you have limited hip internal rotation. This could lead to possible injury and decrease your chances of optimal performance.
