5. Hip Flexor Stretch
Mobility should be considered a priority in everyone’s fitness program, even though most guys couldn’t care less about staying flexible. Warming up, stretching, and mobilizing are often over looked. If you can’t perform each and every exercise with full range of motion, you’re severely missing out on gains.
And of all the muscles you can stretch, none is more important than hip flexors. It’s rare to meet anyone who actually knows how to stretch them. Even experienced lifters don’t address hip flexors as much as they should.
Your hip flexors are part of your core. They are used a tremendous amount through your day, and during your training. When they’re over-worked, weak, or tight, they can cause back pain and general poor mobility. Not being able to move well will ruin your workout and the back pain can ruin your day. Learn to stretch your hip flexors and remember to do it often.
It can be overwhelming when you start anything new. Starting simple with a great foundation is the most important thing you can do. Keep it simple and perfect these important exercises so you can effortlessly progress through your program.
