7 Hip Mobility Exercises to Improve Squatting & Lifting for Crossfitters

Avoid pain and mobility issues caused by stiffened hips.

If you spend a lot of time sitting, then you may have reduced hip mobility. You probably won´t even notice it because you don’t feel it in your hips. But if you’ve ever had lower back pain after a long day at work or had trouble squatting, chances are your hips need some attention.

Our hips and the muscles that surround them are the base for most of our movements. Unfortunately, the necessities of daily life can make our hips less and less functional. Sitting most of the day stiffens the hips and can make them weaker from consistently tight positioning.

To avoid that and improve all your Squat movements, check out these 7 exercises to mobilise your hips.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
