2 week - Pre Race Mobility

Public·20 members

A little anatomy lesson to go with your 90-90 mobility today….

The tensor fascia latae (TFL) is a hip muscle that has a complex anatomical arrangement with the iliotibial band (ITB), and it performs various functional roles – not only in producing hip movement (driving knee up during running), but also imparting fascial tension through the fascia latae of the thigh and the specialised ITB.

Therefore TFL also plays a key role in not only postural support during one legged stance, but also in limiting the tensile stress on the femur caused by the combination of bodyweight, ground reaction force and how these create unique bending forces on the femur. All of which are very important movements in running!

Thanks Dayna… I could really tell the difference in my hips (not as tight) after doing this.
