Improve Your Hip Hinge

Why should you care about your hip hinge?

Increasing the amount of hip flexion or ‘hinge’ at the pelvis will place more load onto larger muscle groups in the lower limb posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings and calves).


So mechanically, a larger muscle can bear more weight, meaning we can minimise excessive strain & pressure being placed on areas such as the lower back and the front of the hips = potentially bigger lifts with less chance of injury!


In this video, these are a few exercises which we routinely prescribe to our patients to improve the hip hinge: ✔️ Standing hip hinge with powerband ✔️Standing hip hinge with dowel ✔️ Tall kneeling hip hinge with dowel ✔️ Quadruped unilateral hip mobilisation hip hinge ✔️ Goblet squat with banded hip hinge ✔️ Single leg RDL with foam roller hip hinge
