Part 2 of 4 of our hip mobility and flexibility series. - Front Steps - Keep your toes on the planted foot pointing forward. Raise your foot and step over the hurdle, land, and then bring the back foot.
- Side Steps - Keep your toes pointing in the same direction. Bring the knee up closest to the bar and step over. Bring the trailing leg in the same manner.
-Backwards. Keep the toes on the planted foot pointing forward. Bring the foot up, open up your hips, and step over the bar. Same with the trailing foot.
- Under the Hurdle - Bring your weight down on the foot away from the bar. Lower yourself under the bar, unlocking your hips at the bottom, and raising on the other side.
These hip mobility and flexibility exercises are too simple and effective NOT to do! -J. Hashey, CSCS
