Traveling Lunge with Twist

By | Blog, Movements | One Comment

Here is one of my favorite movements for improving hip mobility and creating glute strength/firing patterns. Couple key notes on this move:
1- Exhale as you twist your trunk. Holding your breath will only exacerbate tightness
2- Don’t rush the twist. Take you time and let your breathing dictate your tempo
3- Be sure to pull from your heal as you stand for glute engagement and to take the stress off your quadriceps

This movement can be done with no weight as part of a dynamic warm up, or with weight as part of your strength plan. Don’t have a lot of room for the “traveling” part? Not a problem, simply step back into a reverse lunge instead of stepping forward. Then you can do it anywhere.

Do you suffer from tight hips or a tight low back? Are you training hard but sitting the rest of the day for work? If so, here is a great series of movements designed to open up the front of your hips and stretch your abs along with lengthening your spine, hamstrings and calves. You will also find that when done properly increases strength and mobility in your shoulders.
I recommend going though 2-3 sets of 8-10 repetitions, “1” is completing one full cycle of the 3 moves.
This series can be done anywhere, anytime and multiple times a day. Use it to relax and restore from a hard training session, or as a warmup prior to a workout or race. Don’t forget to breathe!! Let your inhale & exhale dictate your movement and tempo for this and all mobility/regeneration movements. Click HERE for the video
