Please note: If you’ve been injured in the past or are recovering from an injury, REMEMBER TO CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR TO ENSURE THAT THE FOLLOWING EXERCISES ARE SAFE FOR YOU TO DO!
Hip health is just one component of a person’s overall wellbeing, and to develop hip health, we are recommending some of our favourite mobility and strength exercises. Strong and properly aligned hips are one of the basic foundations upon which every other part of the body functions.
Unfortunately, many of us don’t have the healthiest of hips. Why not, you ask? Well, if you sit a lot of the time – which the majority of us do – or if you do traditional fitness training that is mostly conditioning-based and forward-focused – then you will likely have imbalances in your body that you might not even know about. If you do have those imbalances, then you could be vulnerable to injury.
How to correct this problem? Get those hips moving in as many ways as possible! Sounds simple, and it is – sort of. What’s not so simple is being consistent with these movements, which could mean changing your workout, your lifestyle and your day-to-day habits.
In an effort to make things easier for you, we’ve put together a variety of exercise tutorials and mini-workouts that you can do starting today in an effort to strengthen and mobilize your hips better. Don’t go to the gym? No problem. Most of the exercises and workouts shown don’t require any equipment. You can do them anytime, anywhere. Enjoy!
