I’ve been noticing lately in the last couple months when back squatting I can feel that my right leg is doing more of the work and pushing up most of the weight. I feel like my body has a tendency to shift to the right when I come out of the hole as well. It has been causing me hip pain mainly in my right hip flexors and causing my knees to get inflamed and causing some pain in my left knee. I’ve been doing some hip flexor stretches everyday and is still bothering me and I am still leaning to the right when I squat.
I’m 6’2’’ and have long legs and arms and my natural leverages definitely suit me better for deadlifting than squatting if that matters at all which I assume it doesn’t. Just trying to provide as much info as possible. It almost feels like my right leg is shorter than my left and is starting to bother me in my everyday life.
Have you had any athletes in the past do this and if so how did you correct it?
Thank you coach.
