6. STRENGTHENING THE HIP HINGE MOVEMENT
“Warm up your hip hinge in all three planes.
Building in some unilateral work is amazing for your hip stability, which has mobility benefits too.
By lengthening the glute in all three planes (flexion, adduction, internal rotation) this also serves as a great activation drill before lifting heavy as we’re asking it to fire from its weakest position. Regress the drill by using markers higher off the floor. Progress the drill by placing them further away and further around. Key cues: stay controlled as you touch the ground, and try to keep your foot flat. Don’t worry about flexing the spine, we’re working on the hips in this drill.”
