Hip Knotting Up


#1

Anyone else get their hips cramping/knotting up when doing exercises laying down on a flatbench. Whenever I do skullcrushers/flat dummbell bp, you name it laying down the side of my hips knot up like crazy anyone else get this any hip stretches to keep the cramping from happening?


#2

Yes this happens to me a lot, especially when lifting heavy. It happens during any pressing movement whether it be DB or BB, flat, incline, or decline.

Two things I find will combat it very well. Foam rolling the area beforehand or doing band walks or both.
