-Four Great Hip Mobility Drills!-
I figured i’d expand on my previous post by giving y’all a few more lunge-type drills. This is a great lunge/squat “matrix” I put together. You can use it as part of a dynamic warm-up or as a mini-workout! Give it a shot! Try 5 reps per side of each movement. Always push through the heel as you stand up from each. Make sure to keep your back flat and hinge forward from the hips on the reaching lunges!
Prisoner Split Squats
You’ll feel a great stretch in the hip flexor/quad of the back leg, and the “prisoner” position of the arms encourages good posture and provides a little chest/anterior delt stretch!
Lateral Lunge + Contralateral Reach
Great for stretching those adductors and improving t-spine mobility!
Reverse Lunge + Rotation
A “twist” on stretching the hip flexors of the rear leg!
Transverse Lunge + Reach
Hits those adductors from a different angle and makes those glutes happy! 🙂
Here are two other pictues showing the Transverse Lunge + Reach, giving you a few different angles so that you may better see the foot placement. Please excuse their poor resolution! 🙂
