The bottom of the squat is the top of that step up, well, before you get up on top of the step 🙄. So, let’s use that concept to help you get some hip flexion.
Just like the video says, all movement should occur from ONLY the hip. Or, if you want to take a more negative approach: Don’t round the back, don’t bend the opposite knee, don’t flex the opposite hip, don’t hold the breath.
If you’re feeling in an FRC mood you can do some pushing of that foot into the chair for a little contract-contract, PAILS/RAILS action…or not. Just do what you gotta do to own that position and get some ACTIVE hip mobility work.
As always, 3 sets of 1 million.
