Title says it all. I want to work on my leg development, but I can barely squat to parallel without any weight load, and if I do so it is with a 1.5x shoulder width stance and with some noticeable pressure on my shins and hips.
I can do goblet squats, Bulgarian split squats and leg press without a lot of trouble, and I can deadlift fine as well. However, I would like something for my quads like deadlifting where there is a also a big strength aspect, because this makes it a lot more fun for me.
Do you think it is worth “learning” to squat by improving my ankle and hip mobility, with the small risk of injuring my knees because of my condition, or should I just do replacement exercises? If it is worth learning to squat, what do you think are the best ways to improve my ankle and hip mobility?
And how bad is the scarring?
After i lost weight (now I'm 75~kg 1.86m)and became fit during quarantine with Chalistenichs at home (from 0 to 25max pushups) i was considering starting a fighting kind of sport. Muay thai would be my choice since there is a good gym near the university I'm going to next year but i had a few doubts about if it's actually a good choice for me because of 2 main problems : -The first is mitochondria (basically my blood cells are small and carry less oxygen, amd i get tired fast with anaerobic exercises) but i can't do much about it other than cardio and maybe some iron integrators -the second one is bow legs, i have tge type of bow legs where the feet are not parallel to each other and i think it might cause problems with balance during kicks etc.
Because of that i was considering doung boxing instead but i don't like the idea that much to be honest.
Hey all! I'm a 31 year old male and my GP thinks I'm bow legged. She has set me up an appointment with a podiatrist. I am curious how this affects my running. It finally makes sense why the outside heels of my shoes wear out first. Are there other bow legged runners here? How has this affected your performance? I'll be asking the pods the same questions too but also wanted to check with you
Hi! I am 20F with legs that are bowed outwards like in this picture. Can this be fixed (non-surgically)? For example, through a physiotherapist? Has anyone had this kind of legs and got them corrected?
