Parisi Speed School coaches emphasize the importance of dynamic hip stretching with all of their athletes and clients. Andrew Haberman begins each training session with various exercises that focus on loosening up the hips and improving overall flexibility, no matter the age of his client or their individual fitness goals.
“Everything is connected. If you are sore or tight in your lower back, hamstrings, glutes, and even your calf muscles, stretching your hips helps loosen everything up.”
Try beginning each of your workouts this week with a dynamic hip warm up:
1. Line up your knee and foot in a straight line, keep your hips level, and raise your arms to the ceiling. Keep your core tight for balance!
2. On your hand and knees, raise one leg as close to a 90 degree angle as possible. Be careful not to arch your back too much.
3. Side walk using a resistance band
