    Hi,
    I have got an issue with my hip going sometimes to the left as I知 pushing the floor. I think it might be the lack of mobility of the left hip joint that is causing that. Muscle imbalance is also an option I知 considering, although I don稚 know if it is really the situation and/ or if the lack of mobility causes that. It is also worth mentioning that I lack mobility in my left achilles heel.

    I went down in my last workout from 118kg (260lb) to 115.4kg (255lb) thinking I can build it up again with the correct form, and by the time I値l get back to 118kg again, I will develop some more mobility (Because I知 going up by 0.5-0.75kg every workout).

    Here are the 2 videos for a comparison:

    The 115.4kg session was especially hard because the day before I did the mobility routine for the hip joints and the Achilles tendons, and I exaggerated in sets and worked too much on the hip joints.

    In the 118kg session I lost focus on the 3rd or 4th rep and lost a little bit of balance, never happened to me before.

    How should I proceed from here considering the hip situation? Should I go further down the weights? or work it up from here again? or should I return to the original weight (118kg)?

    Just in case it is needed:
    Height: 1.73cm (58).
    Weight: 85kg (187lb).

    Best regards,

    Have you been evaluated for a leg length discrepancy?

    Good catch, Satch. Looks like a short left leg.

    Watching you squat is like watching me squat.

    I looked like you when I squatted and I also thought it was a leg length discrepancy as Rip and Satch say. I went to a doctor that specialises in sports, took x-rays and my legs where the same length. The doctor discovered that I have overpronation on the left foot (you lose the arch and your ankle rolls into your feet).

    You can check for overpronation by asking someone to take a picture of your feet from behind, like this:

    No I haven't. Who can evaluate me, Orthopedic doctor/ Physical therapist?
    And how should I proceed with the training until I'll figure it out and fix it?
