This week at Moving Mountains- 01/11

Phase 2 Week 5

We have talked a lot about why we are working on strength and mobility in the hips. Now let's talk about what that might look like in real life... What does the hip do?

The hip is able to perform 6 movements. Flexion, extension, aBduction, aDduction, internal rotation and external rotation.

Flexion: the movement of the thigh towards your chest. Typical range is 100º-120º

Extension: the movement of the thigh behind your body. Typical range is 10- 30º

Adduction: the movement of bringing your leg towards your other leg. Typical range is 20º-30º

Abduction: the movement of bringing your leg away from your body. Typical range is 40º-45º

External/lateral rotation: the movement of turning your knees away from your body. Typical range is 45º-50º

Internal/medial rotation: the movement of turning your knees towards your body. Typical range is 40º-45º

If you are unable to perform any of these movements your body will get there by compensating somewhere else. This compensation leads to muscular imbalances (talked about last week) and often pain. Beyond doing this program, one easy way to make sure that your hips move in all of these ways it to do your "morning routine" aka Hip CARs daily!
