This article is an excerpt from Hit Reset: Revolutionary Yoga for Athletes by Erin Taylor. In

Let’s be honest, would competing be half as fun without the cheering crowds? Probably not.
A strong support group is enormously beneficial to your success as an athlete, is it any wonder that your unstable knees require a similar level of assistance?
The muscles tasked with moving your knees don’t do a very good job of stabilizing them and poor range of motion in the hips can lead to added strain. Your body will try to compensate for your hip’s inability to function properly leaving your knees to bear the brunt of the work. Ouch!
PROBLEM: Your thighbone can’t move freely in your hip joint placing excess strain on your knee and forcing the joint to move in ways it shouldn’t.
SOLUTION: Focus on initiating movement from your hips, where you have more strength and stability to draw upon.
There is no quick fix for maintaining a healthy range of motion. It takes time to unlock your hips and regular maintenance is the only way to regain the functional movement that will ultimately prevent knee injuries. Exercises found in the Mitigate Booty Lock Reset Routine are the key to improving range of motion, stability, and injury prevention.
