Hip Openers


Another great hip opening exercise. (Hand rubbing completely optional)

Benefits:
- Perfect for increasing hip mobility.
- Helps to reduce lower back pain from excessive sitting.

When to use:
- As a warm up or recovery exercise in between a more complex movement.

Volume:
- Perform 10 switches on each leg (20 total) as a warm up or corrective exercise.
- Perform 5 switches on each leg (10 total) as a recovery exercise.

Notes:
- If you're having trouble use your hands to help you get in and out of position.
- Video includes a slightly more advanced overhead variation using a no bounce medicine ball.
