This is a cool post. I saw your post in pubski and wondered if I could be ending up with the same weaknesses. Do you know if squats, lunges, or calf raises help in the same way these exercises do?

one thing to note, you can get selectively weak hips/glutes if you neglect side to side actions, so incorporating the one where you loop your ankles together while standing and try to bring one led out sideways as far as possible is really helpful

something something abductors i dunno, i just read all this on the internet a long time ago and have been trying to include it in my workout ever since

I'm not sure. I suspect those are similar but that stretches are a little different as they're stretching the muscles and ligaments rather than causing the muscles to act.
