Activity: Hip mobility: Internal and external rotation from splits

33-39a

Summary:

A dynamic hip mobilization exercise working through internal and external hip rotation with the adductors already at some stretch.

Description:

  • stand facing forwards, ensure you are not on a slippery surface or wearing slippery socks or shoes
  • carefully widen your stance to the range where you feel a comfortable stretch on the inner thighs or groin area
  • focus on relaxing the muscles of the inner thigh during this stretch (this can better be achieved by adding support from the arms holding onto something, or by placing a cushion or seat under the pelvis)
  • slowly and gently rotate your pelvis to one direction, allowing one thigh to rotate internally (forwards) while the other thigh rotates externally (backwards)
  • then reverse, or rotate in the opposite direction
  • move back and forth between these positions.
NOTE: this stretch is only appropriate for those who already have a moderate to high level of flexibility, as well as good body control.
