Healthy Spine and Hips

Published on 15th Feb 2019 at 17:29 by Shane

This is another mobility movement that we use with our camogie / football / hurling teams. It's a hip flexor stretch but with an added hip abduction movement to target the gluteal fibres of the lead leg.

To modify (make easier) you can keep the back knee on the mat.

As you get into the hip flexor stretch, rotate your body into the lead leg. You can use the tricep area to push the inner thigh and knee outwards. You may feel your body weight shift to the outer border of the lead foot.

Repeat the same with the opposite leg.
