    Hi all,

    I have developed a weird problem over the past few years on my left side. Instead of hammering out my pedal stroke with my quad i almost completely pull up with my hamstring and glute. Lately i have noticed a decrease in muscle in my left VMO and I can't flex it nearly as well as the right quad. Meanwhile my left glute is chronically tight and i have a noticeable decrease in leg stability (running is now out of the question). Climbing hills in the seated position feels really uncomfortable in the glute

    Has anyone had anything similar to this? Or is there any way i can start focusing just on the quads? (already in PT and i'm doing leg extensions religiously, as well as stretching the piriformis).
