Tight hips are an epidemic, especially for student-athletes.
Sitting for prolonged periods of time causes a whole host of problems, one of which is “tight” hips. Tight hip flexors and inactive glutes can lead to huge problems for athletes. Poor posture, limited mobility and lower-back pain are just a few of the major symptoms of tight hips.
Tight hips can severely limit athletic performance, and make it nearly impossible to get into proper position for key exercises like Squats, Deadlifts and sprints. Tight hips are also often the culprit for lower-back pain.
Fortunately, there’s a cure.
The Shin Box Movement is a simple yet extremely effective exercise for ungluing the hips and activating the glutes. This exercise mobilizes and strengthens your hips.
