comment What types of hip exercises are best suited for a runner?
This Clinical Review found weaknesses in hip abductors, external rotators and hip flexors on the involved side as compared to the uninvolved side in runners with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) and iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). So an important factor is the strength of one hip relative to the other, making sure that you strengthen both equally. And I would emphasize abduction over adduction. I was surprised at the hip flexors weakness vs the extensors in the review.

comment Substitute powerlifting exercises for healing wrist injury
@Florian, they are usually a physical therapist or occupational therapist with specialized training. A good one should be able to help. Good luck.

comment Substitute powerlifting exercises for healing wrist injury
Did you see a hand therapist already? It sounds like extending your wrist is causing the pain. Sometimes a simple maneuver can restore the joint position of the little bones of the wrist.

Just a point of clarification on the difference between a strain and a sprain.

comment Where does energy come from?
This q/a about aerobic vs anaerobic exercise will give you an introduction to energy use in the body. The energy does not come directly from calories in the stomach. It is produced by one of two processes to generate a molecule called ATP which is stored for use by the body.

comment Pain in Front Part of Leg
You may also want to see how you are landing - rearfoot or forefoot (anterior). There is information on running techniques in this answer fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/11858/… quoting, "Overall, runners who reported utilizing a more anterior footstrike pattern reported fewer injuries than rearfoot striking runners".

comment Pain in Front Part of Leg
Limiting Shin Splints has good information. Since you are new to running you may want to look into your running surfaces, shoes, running form and exercise - dynamic warm-up, flexibility and strengthening. Look at the link to "ankle dorsi-flexors" for a good strengthening exercise for your lower leg. Hip musculature strength is also important in preventing lower leg injuries and pain.

comment What lower back muscle or tendon is located near the inside of the iliac crest and helps rotate the femur?
If you've had an accident you should really go by what your therapist says. It can be an ongoing process depending on what you hurt. As you can tell by looking at the muscles and the pelvis, it is complicated. But now that you have researched and have a better idea you will probably get more out of therapy and make better progress. Good luck.

See if these are the twin bumps you are describing. If so, this is part of the SI (sacro-iliac) joint, not a muscle. If you have pain here, you may want to check with a physio and ask about Don Tigny mobilizations and exercises.
