Simple question: If you were to design a routine that strengthened the hip girdle area and lasted five minutes or less, what exercises would you use, how many reps and in what order?
Couple of things to consider:
- This comment and this comment correctly highlight that lateral leg raises are targeting the lower back and gluteal muscles.
- Maybe something that looks like one thing is actually another. I never thought of the leg swings as an ankle mobility exercise. Please take the time to read number three on Mike Boyle’s list of Eight Mobility Drills Everyone Should Do. (Note: Gary Gray is person who came up with the Lunge Matrix.)
So here we go – let’s see what we come up with. There are thoughtful people reading this blog and the collective knowledge of the group is many multiples of my individual experience.
I suggest you link to YouTube videos in your comments as our comment service (Disqus) will show a thumbnail of each video you reference.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
