The 2 Minute Fix: Hip Mobility

2minfix-hip-mobility This post is part of a new series I’m calling “The 2 Minute Fix” which will be short videos to teach people easy self-care solutions to common movement faults.

The Problem
Getting started in CrossFit or Weightlifting, the first thing we all learn is that we suck at squatting. This can be for a myriad of reasons, but one of the most common is that our hips don’t offer the flexibility to get into a full depth squat. This can be due to contractors in the hip capsule, facilitated (tight) performs or, as I show in the video, adhesions in the hip joint that requires mobilization.

The Fix
This video looks at three ways to mobilize the hip joint specifically for improving squat mechanics. I focus in on the poster-lateral hip  capsule, piriformis (including a seated version) and demonstrate a banded mobilization technique. Don’t forget to check out parts one and two of this series which focus on thoracic extension and ankle mobility!
