Shin Boxes & Banded Single Leg Glute Bridges

This is a video of two dynamic Hip Mobility Drills/ Warmups that would be perfect to perform before training Glutes and Hamstrings.

 

Shin Boxes

  1. Sit on the floor with your legs at 90 degrees (one leg internally rotated, one leg externally rotated).
  2. While keeping your torso upright and feet planted, slowly rotate your hips until you reach the same 90/90 position on the opposite side.
  3. Continue rotating in this fashion, pausing briefly at each side while contracting the glutes, for 2-3 minutes.

(There are other variations, progressions and regressions to this movement)

Banded Glute Bridges

  1. Begin by placing exercise band around the middle of your quads (thighs).
  2. With your back and feet on the floor,  raise one foot off the ground. This is your starting position.
  3. Using your glutes, extend your hips vertically to the ceiling.
  4. Extend as far as possible, then reverse the motion to return to the starting position.
  5. Perform recommended repetitions then repeat on opposite leg.
