In the new year we are going to begin adding in more Olympic lifting. Please read this and begin working on it.
In an email to Dr. Timothy Hewett, one of the foremost researchers on pediatric knee injuries and injury prevention, we asked the following “We have seen multiple suggestions that a “valgus twitch” is a biomechanical action that not only can result in bigger lifts but is also safe.”
Dr. Hewett responded,
“There is NO evidence to support this and a lot of evidence that a valgus knee position puts you at increased risk for ACL and patellofemoral injury”
(December 20, 2016).
Pay specific attention to how your kids are receiving the bar and coming out of the hole. If the inside of the patella moves medial such that it crosses the big toe you need to stop and work on fixing that, not add more weight.
