At the end of a Jim Cordova shoulder workout video he explains that he likes to train rotator cuffs. The reason being he explains, smaller muscles, if neglected tend to get weak because the bigger muscles we have begin to perform the functions of these smaller muscles. A weak muscle is more prone to injury even if it’s from something outside of the weight room.
He also says he trains his hips and the muscles in that area on leg day.
Unfortunately, unlike the shoulder training video, there was not a Jim Cordova leg training video.
I have a slight lateral pelvic tilt. I believe I developed it from years of barbell compound movements and neglecting weak points as well as isolation unilateral work. I also feel mixed grip deads and not changing my grip may have been a factor in my pelvic tilt as well.
I just started stretching to correct this, my quadratus lumborum in particular.
However being that it is in my hip area, it wouldn’t hurt to strengthen those muscles. I think it would help my situation.
So getting to the point.
What exercises work the muscles in the hip? What kind of hip mobility work do you do? What would be a program to add to my current leg day?
Here is the Cordova shoulder workout video. Pretty solid.
