CHANGE YOUR HIPS = CHANGE YOUR CENTER OF GRAVITY
HOW ARE YOUR HIPS AFFECTING YOUR KNEES?
Let’s face it, YOUR BODY IS CHANGING.
As athletes grow into their body, it is imperative that they grow into their bodies proportionally, to maximize movement to succeed in sport. Often times athletes focus on the bulk of the core of the abs, legs and arms, while missing the KEY ELEMENT of hip mobility. If your body continues to grow and pack on the muscle while the hips continue to get less mobil and locked into place, extension of femur range of motion with continue to decrease, putting heavy pressure on muscles not being used in cohesion while hip angle is out of place
Example 1) Player loses 20% body fat in high school or college. Muscles get better, but while hip mobility remains the same or worse as the ‘old body.’ Typically speed does not increase as much as muscle gain in the example.
Example 2) Wrestler/Fighter drops 15% body weight in a week before a big match. Some feel better at a lighter weight, but other wrestlers feel less body control and decreased center of gravity. What is happening is with extreme weight loss, the mobility is NOT distributed proportionally, and parts of body (hip) lag mobility with the shock of weight loss.
UN-GLUE STIFFNESS OF HIGH HIP JOINT
Through this website you will learn how to mobilize the stiff tendons & muscles locking your high hip capsule into place. This is often found in athletes suffering ANTERIOR PELVIC TILT. Correcting the movement will allow/influence the femur to slide efficiently in the joint, rather than lock the joint in place and OVER STRETCHING the tendons & muscles surrounding the IMMOBILE hip joint.
Adding balance and flexibility to tendons & muscles surrounding hip mobility will “unlock” the follow thru you may find impossible to achieve.
