Single Leg Romanian Dead-lifts- Exercise of the Week

We use this exercise to teach proper hip mechanics. When this exercise is done properly, the movement should come primarily from the hips with a slight bend at the knees and ankles. You should maintain a neutral spine throughout the exercise (no hunching forward). This can be added to a warm-up for anyone, or as a main exercise for people with poor balance and hip stability.

Hip Mobility Figure 8-Exercise of the week #2

You can do hip stretches lying on a yoga mat until the cows come home, but unless you learn to control your body with your legs in variety of positions, there won’t be much impact on your performance. This is an exercise that we use with all levels of athletes to improve their hip mobility.
