After my last post about strengthening my hips for running, a few of you asked what kind of hip exercises I typically do. And for a while, I'd been kicking around the idea of making a video for my blog. So here it is ... my first Vlog, or Vblog, or Vidlog, or whatever the cool kids call it. It's a quick video demonstrating the typical workout I use to strengthen the hips area including, hip flexors, adductors, upper and lower glutes, hamstrings, and quads.
Michael laughed at it. And I say "aaaa" and "ummm" a little too much. Plus, if you don't like the song "Like I Roll" by Black Stone Cherry, well sorry - you should. I use it illegally in this video so I'm sure YouTube will be shutting it down soon. Anyway, this is what I look and sound like ... big treat I know (sarcasm).
Some of my form is not great, but hopefully it will give you an idea of what I use to keep my hip area strong and healthy. I usually do an ab and lite core workout Monday-Friday, and then use this as a supplemental workout about once-twice per week. My favorites and probably the most effective exercises for me out of all the ones shown in the video are the Speed Skaters, and all of the band and cable work. Hopefully some of these will work for you too! If you have questions, certainly let me know ... and enjoy!!!
... be great today!
