Hip Flexions and Extensions Will Improve Sports Performance

If you want to improve your athleticism, then never forget this: your hips must be flexible! The hips (along with the glutes, quads and hamstrings) are involved in powerful athletic movements.

A great dynamic flexibility exercise is the hip flexion and extension:

Do the exercise this way:

1) Lean forward, with your hands on a wall.

2) Keep your toes dorsiflexed (pointed up) and swing (with control) the right knee up to the chest.

3) Pause and extend (kick) the right hip and leg back as far as possible. Perform 10 repetitions with each leg.

Dynamic flexibility exercises have been proven to prepare the body best for practice or games. Add this flexibility exercise to your daily routine!
