Perhaps the instability is coming from the top down...?
Hip controls transverse plane. THat's where the faling in occurs.
I'm thinking his may be a subconscious effort to add more T-plane glute to the equation to assist the quadriceps by way of the IT band. Usually a sign of weak quads. It's very common.
IT looks like his shoulders are going clockwise in the transverse plane just based on what I see his arms doing as drivers. So what I would do (if he is subconsciously adding T-plane) is have him do the same movement but drive his arms counterclockwise to see if his LE does the same/similar pattern or something all together different. If it is something all together diferent such as clockwise rotation in the T-plane from the LE then I would conclude it is not subconscious and possibly more in the hip region and not the quad. Just a thought.
Joe, What about holding a med ball over his head to control rotation? Martin
It's "she", I misspelled "the".Holding the hands up over the head, with or without a med ball "tweaks out" the thoracolumbar fascia, increasing the contibution of the quadriceps to the hop, magnifying the dysfunction.
