Make Hip Exercises Part Of Your Regular Exercise Routine
Hip Hip Hooray!
There are over 20 muscles that cross the hip, including the abductors (in the outer thigh), the hip flexors (in front), and the abductors (in the inner thigh), yet strangely enough, these muscles are often ignored in strength training routines. The results of neglect can be serious; when hips are tight, they can affect everything from our ability to bend forward, to overuse of the spine. By performing exercises that stretch and strengthen our hips, we can avoid pain and injury, improve motion and circulation, and release energy. These are just a few reasons why we should make hip exercises part of our regular exercise routine.
