    How “hip” is your workout?

    -

    Hip drive, which initiates the triple extension movement, is important for virtually every sport, regardless of whether it involves running, jumping, throwing, swinging, or kicking.

    Here’s more support for adding “hinge” (hip flexion and extension) exercises to your training regimen: Strong hips can help you become strong all over, according to a Men’s Health article.

    Researchers in New Zealand and the U.K. found that as you increase the weight in lower-body exercises like the squat and deadlift, the muscles around your hips carry a larger proportion of the load.

    “Your hips are the most powerful part of your body, so they take over as exercises become strenuous,” according to the study’s lead author. “Working them directly can enhance your overall strength.”

    In addition to “hinge” exercises like squats and deadlifts, kettlebell swings and barbell hip thrusts (pictured) are great additions to any workout regimen.

    Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
