IT'S ALL IN THE HIPS The hip hinge is a fundamental movement that all humans should know how to do. In day to day movement, the hinge helps you move safely and efficiently and distribute stress between the back and hips. It also is a great way for people with low back pain to move pain free.πŸ˜ƒ . Why you should hinge comes down to simply having options. . There is nothing wrong with spinal flexion. It is a natural movement that we should be able to do. But just as we should be able to move with flexion, we should also be able to move without it. πŸ— The more variability we have, the more options we have in our movement. . If you can't hinge, you have no choice but to flex through your spine. And while that's fine to tie your πŸ‘Ÿshoes, it may not be the best way to move your couch or pick up a heavy deadlift, especially if you haven't trained loaded flexion. You need to know how to organize yourself and move efficiently when placed in higher stress situations so that you reduce your injury risk.πŸ‹οΈβ€β™‚οΈ . So if you need to work on your hinge, this is one of my favorite progressions. The key is to load into the hips and keep a neutral spine. It takes time to build this coordination so don't get frustrated if it doesn't come naturally at first. Keep practicing and you'll get it.✌❀ .
