Hi everybody. I think that I have a pretty bad imbalance between my two legs. That is, I feel like I put more weight on one leg. Also, it feels like my right hip is a bit higher than my left. If I lift my left knee up to 90 degrees and hold it, everything is ok. But if I do this with my right, I can not hold it there. I can only hold it if I rotate my knee and my torso a bit to the left, or alternatively dip my hip out to the left.
I am not just holding my knees up for fun; I have been told that my feet are not aligned horizontally when I squat (one foot is behind the other) and that, on the way up, the bar is very much tipped down on the left. I can also see this if I squat in front of a mirror; the bar is not even close to horizontal on the way up, but tips a lot to the left. Also, while I squat, I feel like I am dipping down towards the left, rather than in between my legs.
How can I fix this? I recently tweaked my lower back (left side), and I think that it was something to do with this. The lower back injury is minor and I will be fine soon. I have tweaked it before and it ended up fine in the end. But I want to fix this imbalance. Thanks for any help.
