Tutorial: Hip Extension
21st May 2018
is a functional whole-body strength, stretch and balance exercise.
The warm-up is a very important stage of every exercise program. It increases body temperature, prepares muscles, ligaments and tendons to exercise.
A good warm-up is crucial when you’re facing a cold environment, preventing injuries like muscle breakdown or muscular contractures.
With the bar hanged by the strips, hold it on the ends with your arms extended. The bar must be aligned with your hip.
Try to maintain your trunk in a planking position while you bent over it to the front and lift your leg backwards.
Keep your arms extended, holding the bar and try to go further, extending your shoulders, trunk and leg.
Step back to the early position and switch the leg.
Hip extension increases functional mobility in a full body activation mode.
Promotes core activation, coordination and increases flexibility.
Repeating some movements to each side will prevent injuries and prepare the muscle to moderate or intensive exercises.
