Imagine I saw a snapshot of what you did in the gym today. Now, imagine I ran you through a full physical screen/assessment to find out the things you struggle with the most. Would the snapshot of your workout reflect you training your biggest weaknesses? How many exercises would I see that only reinforce problems? I’m not trying to point fingers, but I am trying to make a point that leads to change.
The hip/pelvic region is one of the most important parts of our body. It is vital for functions like walking, sitting, standing, jumping, etc. So much of our daily lives are affected by the usage of our hips.
Over time, when you stack things up like a growing family, work, and other responsibilities you end up with some weird new pinching in that area. It may be dull at first, but it builds to more. Finally, you head to the gym ready to undo it all but that’s when it reaches a boiling point.
