Hip Rotations Make Your Tight Hip Flexors More Flexible
Posted Apr 29 2009 10:23pm
If you have tight hip flexors, a good dynamic flexibility exercise for you would be hip rotations...
Do external hip rotations (pictured above) and internal hip rotations every day to improve your speed and athleticism.
If your hip flexor muscles are not flexible, you will not even be a good athlete in your sport(s)! Tight hip flexors also lead to some painful injuries (like pulls and strains) that are hard to recover from. Every athletic movement involves your hips so condition them continually!
Great athletes dominate dynamic movements with the hips, glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings. Lateral speed is particularly created and maintained by the strength of the glutes and hips. There are a host of injuries that arise when your hips are tight causing your glutes to not fire properly.
