Hip tightness and limited mobility can impact the overall health of the lower kinetic chain and lower back. This exercise provides a simple way to work on hip mobility and stability at the same time using a sliding disc.
Hip adductor strains are a common problem for some athletes. This exercise offers a mobility option that can be done using a sliding disc to increase elasticity and warm the hip prior to more intense activity.
Attempting to improve thoracic rotation by forcing the body into a stressful, maximal end range is counter to what our nervous system interprets as safe. Using the smooth, rhythmical motion of Core-Tex, we employ an "ask don't tell" strategy that produces immediate results.
Learn how to put the core to work during HIIT with the following intensity variations: skate with a curtsy squat; abdominal crunches on a stability ball; rear lunge; and back extensions on the stability ball.
