Activation Drill to Help Decrease Your Hip Mobility Deficit
This exercise will highlight the mobility deficit in your hip flexors. In fact, I bet if you are one of those players who always feels tight in the front of your hip, that you will not be able to successfully do this mobility/activation drill.
Here is exactly how to do it…
- Keep your points of contact
- Do not bend your weight bearing knee
- Stay tall in your torso
Start with 3 reps on each side with a 5 second hold. If you can do that perfectly, then build up to 5 reps on each side.
If you cannot do it without your knee dropping down or your hip cramping, then try this version for a few weeks to get things working and then go back to the standing version.
PS – Just checked and as of 15-minutes ago there are 4 more spots in the Shutout Academy before the price goes up $10 per month. If you don’t know what it is AND you are a goalie who is looking for any advantage that will make you the go-to goalie in your league, you should check out what it is and then decide if it is right for you.
