How to Prep Your Hips for Deadlifting | Ep. 90 | Movement Fix Monday
This week I want to show you a way you can prep your hips before deadlifting.
To prep the hips for deadlifting, I will do the following (as shown in the video)
- Straight leg raise (5-10)
- Hip Circles (5)
- Modified Hip Airplanes (3-5)
- Banded pull through (10-15)
Rep schemes are based on feel, but a recommendation is listed in parentheses above.
Since I sort of messed up the banded pull through due to my rock not holding my band, here is a video of a banded pull through from John Rusin.
