The Truth In Your Hips (Because They Don’t Lie)
You feel it, right? The motion, the tension? If you move for a living, your hips are a part of every motion you make. If you’re not using your hips correctly, the rest of your body will never fall in line. From proper lifting to to a strong core to overall balance, the truth lies in your hips! So be wise and keep on reading the signs of your body with this latest (and hippest) collection of industrial sports resources!
Hinging Your Success
Want to master the perfect squat? Looking for the start to a perfect lift? Well, you must master a hip hinge first! Watch the video to become a pro at the hip hinge. Get ready to say goodbye to bad lifting practice and hello to your hips. It’s the hippest exercise around!
Just because you can’t touch your toes doesn’t mean that a good dose of yoga can’t help. Flexibility is not a requirement. Yoga is a fantastic way to dynamically warm up for your day OR to wind down at the end of your day. It ALSO engages your core, increases flexibility, and focuses your breathing. Give yourself some grace and give it a try!
