Hip kinematics and muscle activity during the 1-legged squat

Are hip kinematics and gluteus maximus activity correlated with frontal plane knee kinematics?

A study was conducted on women, investigating hip and knee kinematics and hip muscle function between good and poor performers on the single leg squat and the relationships between these variables. Increased knee valgus during the single leg squat was found to be correlated with increased hip internal rotation and adduction and decreased gluteus maximus activation levels.
