The Hip Hinge


The hip hinge is a basic movement of life. Performing it optimally will help with low back pain and hip problems.


Set up: Think length through the back of your head, set your 3-D breathing and foot tripod.
  • Stand arm's length from a wall.

  • Lift your arms up and place your hands on the wall at shoulder height.

  • Exhale and bend through your hips (your pelvis will roll forward) keeping your weight over your foot tripod.

  • Only move as far as you can continue to move through your hips

Expert tips: as you move through your hips think of letting your SITS bones open and tailbone lifting.
