SQUAT MOBILITY PART 3: Groiner for hips

SQUAT MOBILITY: Groiner stretch to open up the hips (3/7)

This is pretty much a deep lunge in what resembles a sprint start position and it’s a great way to open up the hips as a warm-up before a lower-body workout or to be done as mobility exercises on your off days.

STEPS:

  1. Start in a push-up position and bring your right foot to the outside of your right hand.
  2. Drop your right elbow to the ground, or as close as possible to increase the stretch in the right hip and hold for a few seconds.
  3. Straighten your arm again and “search” around for tight spots by moving the hips around. Hold the position of any tight areas you find to free up the muscles.
  4. Bring your right foot back to the start and repeat on the left.
  5. I like to repeat this about 8 times for each leg before I squat, as a more dynamic stretch. On rest days or after your workout as a cool down, you can hold the stretch for 1-2 minutes.
