HI there. I am wondering if you can clarify the TFL basic position. I see that the client lying on his/her left side facing away from the trainer near the edge of the table has the supporting left leg at 90 degrees hip & knee flexion. I see that the right working leg has a straight knee. Can you clarify whether the right working hip is also at 90 degrees flexion or straight? I'm having a hard time picturing the position. Thanks.
