The Deadlift, Rearfoot Pronation, and The Adductor Muscles
This week’s stuff you should read includes articles from Mike Robertson, Chris Kolba, and The Sports Physiotherapist.
Wow, Mike Robertson just wrote an EPIC article on the deadlift. The deadlift truly is an important exercise for many reasons. This is a significant resource and should be a mandatory read. In fact, I bet you’ll want to bookmark and return again in the future!
Chris Kolba discusses some information regarding the anatomy and mechanics of the adductor muscle group, including how the muscle groups functions in 3 planes of motion.
The Sports Physiotherapist has a nice review of the effectiveness of orthotics and other methods of controlling excessive pronation. I still think we need to train the foot and ankle to handle dynamic forces, but orthotics are often times necessary, at least until we teach our patients and clients better.
