Opening The Hip Flexor Using Suspended Training

Tarek & Ulrik are back with another great mobility video. This time they’re focussing on the hip flexor and using the suspended fitness trainer to release the muscles, which aids in improving the overhead press.

Some tips from the video:

  • Make sure the knee supporting the body is quite high along the body
  • Keep the thigh of the raised leg locked so the knee stays off the ground. If this means the supporting knee needs to move, so be it
  • Hold for 30-40 seconds
  • When attempting the overhead press, make sure the hips don’t tilt

Good mobility in the anterior chain decreases the chances of injuring the back during an overhead press.

The boys will be back next week with more awesome mobility videos.
