Movement Prep should be an essential part of every person’s workout. Mobilizing the hips are very important not only to protecting the joint from damage, but to achieving better movement during your working sets.
I like to use this particular movement for slightly more advanced clients as it combines multiple movements.
This is one of many great hip specific movements for prepping the body for squats and work with the shoulders. It also initiates activation of the core muscles.
Although this movement may even be used as a part of your working sets, for the purpose of Movement Prep I generally adhere to 1 of 2 protocols depending on time available and level of the client.
Protocol 1 (Time Based): 2 to 3 sets of 1 minute with 30 to 60 second rest
Protocol 2 (Rep Based): 8 to 12 reps per set with 30 – 60 second rest
