One of the most common movements in workouts I see people have trouble with every day is the hip hinge movement.
This is the movement you need if you’re doing any type of deadlift, single leg deadlift, squats or single leg squats. If done properly it can lead to huge improvements in those lifts and reduced back pain through strengthening all of the muscles in your posterior chain. But if done improperly it can lead to massive, debilitating back pain that could leave you out of commission for weeks or even months.
So it’s a good idea to take some time and get this right.
This video is a couple years old, but the message is still as true today as it was back then (even if the video quality isn’t as crisp as I’d like it to be…)
Take a look and spend some time over the next week practicing the hip hinge movement so you can save yourself weeks or months of rehab down the line!
