More anti-clam

From the APTA combined sections meeting '09: Does Isometric Gluteus Medius Torque Affect Frontal Plane Pelvic Drop While Running? In a nutshell, no.
I hate to beat this topic to death, but here is more efficacy to keep your athletes weight bearing. Researchers Burnet and Pidcoe measured side lying gluteus medius strength with a hand held dynamometer to see how well "on the floor" strength translated to running. With a 3D kinematic device they measured frontal plane pelvic drop, and found a poor correlation between the two.
Go with step downs, mini band walks, hip hikes & remember- no load means no explode.

I've decided to give this blog thing a try. I hope you don't mind my posting the address. If you do mind just take it off the comments.
