At Zenith Strength, one of the first things we teach our clients and athletes is the importance of hip mobility. You need mobility in order to move well and if you are an athlete who plans on minimizing knee, back and shoulder injuries you need to make sure you are addressing you hip mobility on a daily basis.

My friend and colleague Daniel, introduced me to a site dedicated to mobility. Check it out here.

Below is a compilation of some of the top mobility exercises for the lower body, focusing primarily on hip mobility put together by Kelley Starrett, a DPT who really knows his stuff.

Check it out.

 

Train hard and stay healthy.

Today’s post is video highlight of one of our collegiate tennis players from the Eagle Fustar full-time program who shows that female athletes are just as explosive as their male counterparts and can jump out the roof provided they get the right training to maximize their genetic gifts.

She is only 5ft 2 inches and easily cleared the 30 inch box.

She then followed that up with a 36 inch box jump which is over half her height. Keep in mind that she is only 62 inches tall!

Enjoy the video.

More good stuff to come.

Train Hard!
