No, I don't. But glad it helped.

I haven't read up on that sort of stuff yet although I should. I also am poor so I don't have many books.

However, I did find out one that works well for myself when I can't do the one in the video. Basically, set yourself up so that you're supported on your hands (on pbars or rings or a ledge) then quickly externally rotate the hips and squeeze the glutes and hamstrings as hard as possible.

This will literally RIP the SI joint back into place if it's slipped or slightly displaced. Has caused me a few cramping hammies, but the effect of eliminating the slip is something I can feel right away.
