Open Up Hips & Hamstrings?


#1

Mine have been tight lately, even with foam rolling and lacrosse ball usage. I need some stretches to use, what do you guys do?


#2

Kneeling hip flexor stretch is a great one. I try to do 60 seconds a side twice a day when I can remember.

I think we need to see your ass pics to make a better judgement of what your solution could be.

Deep tissue massage. Make sure it's someone who's worked on weightlifters before. I found this guy who finally told me I'm "too much work" for him...lol.

A couple of really good movements from Cressey and Robertson's Maginificent Mobility DVD.

Supine and Prone Scorpion


#8

Belted hip squats attached to the low pulley on the cable cross over. Go slow and light.

Step back about 10 feet with the low cable locked in at about 2 feet off of the ground. Squat real deep and slow for a couple of sets and reps .

I don't think they recommend this drill any longer. Lumbar mobility is bad

Interesting. Where did you read that they changed their minds?
