Let’s work on strengthening your hips!

Why you ask!? Hip mobility and strength is essential for daily activities like bending down to pick up a box, walking up a flight of stairs or simply getting up from your chair.

The primary role of the hip extensors (hamstrings and adductors) is to extend the hip during walking or running. Extensors also provide dynamic stability when standing on one leg. The hip extensors are responsible for lower-body strength and for distributing power from the ground through the rest of the body.

While squats are great for strengthening this area, I would also encourage you to try these five moves. Try each move out with 10-15 reps for 2-3 sets.

Glute Bridge

Hip Hinge

Step Ups

Backward Lunges

Side Lunges


As always, if you need a demo – just let me know!
