The hip is a complex major weight bearing joint and takes part in many movements. The lack of mobility in that area may affect the knees, back, restrict movement, and general performance as much of the force your body generates comes from the hips.
Sedentary lifestyle puts our bodies in to a passive flexed position which over time may create various imbalances in other areas of the body. Many movements /sports disciplines don’t explore various ranges of motion of that joint neither ( focusing just on one or two) therefore it is important for us to balance it with all the ranges, directions our hip can move.
In part 1 we explore beginner-friendly drills for internal & external rotation, flexion and extension. Follow along!
