The arm, ab, butt, leg, tummy… we focus on all these body parts during our workout routine, but, what about the hips?
You see, your hips are one of the primary force-producing joints, involved in virtually every lower-body movement from squatting down and jumping to running and lifting. These routines will help you keep them in shape.
1. RESPECT THE LITTLE GUYS.
Your hip flexors are one huge part of the picture, but they’re not the only muscles that need TLC. Before your workouts, especially lower-body ones, foam-roll your inner thighs and try an activation warm-up to strengthen your external rotators—you need them for 360-degree movement. Three sets of 20 side-lying clamshells is recommended.
