Whether it’s being able to perform exercises with optimal technique, reducing your risk of injury, or just feeling better…mobility work is the magic pill you’re looking for.
And when it comes to hip mobility, it’s something that the majority of us can work on.
The 5 Min Hip Mobility Routine
Time efficiency in the gym is everything for me. Everything needs to serve a purpose.
So when it comes to warming up or doing mobility work, I like to incorporate movements that provide immediate and direct benefit.
This quick 5 min routine can be performed as your warm-up or on your rest days for some active recovery.
How to do it:
Step 1: Get a timer and some floor space.
Step 2: Perform each of the following drills for 60 sec (5 min total).
Step 3: Go crush your workout.
Note: If you’re using this routine as your warm-up, try holding the last stretch for 30 sec each side. If you’re using this as an active recovery routine on your rest day, hold for 1-2 min each side.
But with that being said, listen to your body and if you feel like you want to hold it a little longer than 30 sec each side at the end of your warm-up, go for it!
