Movement: Single Leg Hip Extension

By | Movements | No Comments

Use this move to work balance and symmetry for your hips & lower body.

We recommend using body weight only as part of a dynamic warm-up with 2-3 sets of 5-6 reps. For strength/balance add weight and perform 3-4 sets of 5-8 reps.

Bonus if you can do this barefoot to engage foot proprioception.

Mobility and movement in all planes of motion are critical for any athlete to reduce the risk of injury. This movement series hits every ROM for the lower body while also improving balance. We recommend 2-3 sets of 4-5 reps with body weight as a warm-up. For your workout hold a kettle bell or dumbbell and do 3-4 sets of 4-6 reps
