In part 2 of our weight loss series, we’re talking about hinging at the hip and moving properly. For this drill, you’ll need to take a PVC pipe and aline it along your spine. Move, maintaining contact, as far as you can without disconnecting from the pipe, making sure to hinge at the hip.
The hip hinge is a critical part to daily movements such as picking up groceries, doing laundry, and just about every daily activity.
Next, we’ll take you through a drill to get on and off the floor. Spread your feet and plant one hand on the floor, kick one foot out and sit, then straighten both legs.
To get out, watch the video 🙂
This may seem simple, but it’s the core of human movement. It’s challenging so don’t over-estimate how simple it looks. What matters is that you push through and persevere.
Next up, we’re focusing on being on all fours. Get on your hands and knees, place your hands underneath your shoulders, your knees underneath your hips, and pull your toes underneath you. From there, lift your hips and imagine a scalding cup of coffee on your back that has to stay put so it doesn’t burn you. Then, practice moving opposite hand to opposite knee.
Back to the rower, think in 5 minute increments. And start to apply a bit of force. Take your time in the rhythm and do 2-3 rounds.
