Video Series: Hip Work
It’s not uncommon for many people, especially with age, to have weak or inflexible hips due to excessive sitting and too little exercise. Many athletes suffer from muscle imbalances in the hip capsule that can lead to overuse, pain, and injury. Stretching and strengthening the muscles in this area helps build stability and flexibility, so you can move with ease and avoid injury.
The muscles we will target over the next six weeks include the gluteus maximus, which extends the hip, the gluteus medius, that assists lateral movement, and the hip flexors that initiate extending the leg.
