    Brilliant!
    I’m a fan of Katy Bowman’s books but your explanation is so much more precise in terms of correct foot position in parallel. Katy says line up little toe with lateral malleolus but for me with a ridiculously wide foot, I just knew this was incorrect. Mid heel with 2nd toe makes sense as foot width can be ignored.

    Question: what is piriformis actually for & how does it relate to the other external rotators? It can provide both internal & external rotation of femur & yet you don’t mention it as being involved in correct orientation of knee in the above video. It’s often tight & I know it can be a cause of sciatica if the sciatic nerves pass through it. I’ve wondered what percentage of sciatica is actually caused by a tight piriformis but suspect there will be little in the way of data on this.

    Thanks for your time, Shari!
