“Today we’re going to focus on increasing flexibility in the hips. Tension in this area is a common issue for fighters. Not only do tight hips significant reduce your range of motion but they also leave you susceptible to injury in other areas of the body. This can regularly be seen in jujitsu when defending the guard pass. If your hips are tight the body will natural overcompensate by twisting the knees or extending the lower back out of their natural range of motion. To avoid issues like this from happening let’s look at a few hip opening postures that can be done regularly before and after training.

o Knees to chest
o Right knee to chest rotate in hip socket right then left
o Left knee to chest rotate in hip socket right then left
o Knees to chest
o Fetal position
o Table top position (hands and knew)
o Down dog
o Walk the dog
o Three legged dog open the hip R
o Down dog
o Walk the dog
o Three legged dog open the hip L
o Down dog
o Lizard lung R
o Down dog
o Lizard lung L
o Down dog
o Wide knee child’s pose
o Happy baby
o Happy baby extend right leg
o Happy baby extend left leg
o Butterfly
o Corpse

Try repeating this sequence for 2 or 3 rounds and see if you are able to feel the difference in the hip flexors when drawing the knees tightly into the chest from the first round vs the second or third.

Thanks for joining me! Until next time, Namaste fighters.”
