Learning To Use Our Hips

You are a smart coach, I can tell because you are on this site, seeking out information to help better your athletes.  Since you are smart coach, when asked what the mission of your program is you spout off the phrase “injury prevention” without hesitation.  Good, you passed the first test.  But what about question #2, what are you doing to prevent injuries in your program?   Not so fast on the trigger are you?  Let’s take a few minutes and talk about this, and then I have some exercises I want to introduce to you.

Stabilizing and postural muscles should be trained for endurance the majority of the time.  This means your upper back, abdominal corset, and the AB/ADDuctors of the hip and shoulders.

To get you started, I have included a few videos of some different hip exercises that I like to use with my athletes.   For starters, I want to thank my man Greg Goddard for being the subject in these videos.  He was a real trooper, I caught him right at the end of a heavy squat workout, so he was a little fried up.

Sit back, move at the hips

  • Vertical shin positon, heels even at the bottom.
  • Take your time, don’t crash down the last inch
  • Watch that knee position, keep it stable
  • Train for endurance, 45 seconds on each side for 2-3 sets.

Buy Msj Valium Online Uk I like to use the Vertimax for this, but there are many other ways to perform this exercise.  You will notice Greg is standing on a 6 inch box, this is important for maintaining a level body position.  I don’t want to twist and turn at the hips or shoulders trying to balance, that work should happen at the ground based hip.  Keep those hips level and square to the wall.

  • Hips and shoulders squared up
  • Claw at the box with your foot
  • Control out and in, slow and smooth
  • Watch that knee position, no movement.
  • Perform for time or reps, train for endurance 45 seconds on each side.
  • In the video I had Greg set up with the foot in front and behind, do a set of each with both legs and your golden.

This is a common exercise, but I feel some of the finer points are commonly lost.  We talked about training eccentrically, absorbing loads with the right muscles.  This exercise provides a great opportunity to train the abductors/external rotators of the hips eccentrically, which is a vital pattern for reducing injuries at the knee.   Holding the band up high gives us some nice isometric upper back work as well, added bonus.

  • Half squat, athletic position, feet pointed forwards.
  • Lead with the knee, don’t just kick your feet out.
  • CONTROL the step back in.  Don’t drag your feet or let the band rip you back.  Slow and controlled on the way in, that’s the eccentric hip work.
  • Step wide, stay wide.  Don’t narrow that stance.
  • Train for endurance, 10 steps each way for a couple sets.
