Move Those Hips

bg_10As we discussed in other sections on stretching, there are a number of variations.  We feel it is important to warm  up and cool down, perform some basic stretches and then more specific stretches for your sport.  We have also included the Hold-Relax stretching routine for maintenance stretching.

There is also a need for some athletes to pay particular attention to those body parts that are constantly being used and are crucial to performance.

One such muscle group is the hips,  Now everyone uses their hips, but some athletes including hockey, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and track to them constantly and usually at full stride, twisting, turning, landing and more.

So we have included a special hip flexor stretching program here.  Download it and keep it in your planning book.  Do these stretches once day to stay flexible with full range of motion.
