Mobility Project- Working the Deep Squat to Improve Hip Range of Motion

Hip range of motion is important in maintaining good movement patterns in all activities that we do. Today we are looking at improving the deep squat by using a resistance band to create some distraction at hip by driving the hips back and down. This opens up the hip while prioritizing good back and foot position to create adductor tension. This is great for those of you that struggle with back pain. Once we get this position we can internally rotate one hip while we crossover the other leg to get a big approximation force though the internally rotated hip. Spend at least 2 minutes each side and then get into some soft tissue work to release the IT band into the quadriceps using some sort of roller. I LOVE the Quadballer from trigger point for this one. It’s awesome!
