Hip Hinge

The Hip Hinge is a fundamental movement pattern that needs to be mastered by everyone training. The Hip Hinge will keep the lower back, hamstrings, hips, glutes, & spine strong and healthy. The Hip Hinge works & looks similar to a door hinge.

The hips go back and then thrust forward. Mastering this movement pattern will transfer very well to athleticism, other exercises in the gym, & help you in daily tasks.

The technique is broken down as follows:

1.       Stand up straight

2.       Feet shoulder width apart

3.       Feet pointed forward

4.       Unlock the knees

5.       Shoulders back

6.       Head up

7.       Push the butt back

8.       Drive the hips forward

Exercises you want to focus on are:

1.       Romanian Deadlift

2.       Kettlebell Swing

3.       Single Leg Romanian Deadlift

4.       High Swings

Add the Hip Hinge movement pattern 1-3x a week to your program & you will see an improvement in everything you do.
