25min Active Hips | STRETCH
About: An active hip stretch working on finding functional range of motion in the 4 ranges our hips move. Extension, Flexion, Internal Rotation, and External Rotation. We will use a few different techniques to help increase mobility and range of motion for the hips. One of those techniques is called PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation). Which long story short involves contracting a lengthened muscle for a short burst (around 5-10sec), followed by a stretch. When we get to this part we want to make sure we work at a 4-6.5/10. Never working past a 7!
What do I mean when I say 'Functional Range Of Motion'? Most joints are designed to move through certain ranges/positions. Being able to move our joints through their required ranges of motion can allow us to move safely through our Fun Moves, along with moving through the activities of daily living which = Functional Range of Motion. When we lack a certain motion in a joint, the body will find other ways to make up for that lack of movement which can often time lead to an overuse injury! If you have ANY questions about this I would be more than happy to help you out. Give me a DM @afewfunmoves or email [email protected]
