4 Hip Mobility Exercises

4 Hip Mobility Exercises



Hip Mobility Exercises

For many years while powerlifting and bodybuilding I trained every single muscle I could to build muscle and get stronger.

I paid attention to my quads, my hamstrings, my lower back, my upper back, my lats, you name it I trained it.

However there were two things I really neglected that I pay much more attention to now and that is training my hips and training my glutes.

When it comes to being STRONG the hip/glutes are the true power source.

The issue with using your hips is a lot of time you can’t use your hips because you lack the mobility in your hips to have them work.

By foam rolling and adding in Hip Mobility Exercises you can improve hip power, range of motion, reduce back pain and of course lift HeavyWeights.

Try these 4 Hip Mobility exercises.  These can be done before any workout and if your hips are stiff they can be done numerous times throughout the day to make you feel better and move better.
