90/90 Hip Mobility Exercise

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The 90/90 hip mobility movement is a great way to work on both hips at the same time. It combines external rotation of the front leg and internal rotation of the back leg which is required in most dynamic and athletic movements from walking, to a golf swing, to a hockey stride. A lack of either internal/external rotation on either side can lead to compensations in movement.
_______
The following videos demonstrate modifications for the 90/90. Some key points to help perform the movement are:
• both knees need to be at 90 degree angles
• foot on front leg should be in line with the back knee and shin

Hip Flexor Stretch

Key points to focus on:
✔️ FRONT LEG: knee over ankle
✔️ BACK LEG: knee stacked under hip, shoulder and ear
✔️ PELVIC POSITION: Contract back leg, bum(glute), and abs to tuck your tailbone underneath you
