Practice Tip - Work on Hip Mobility
The good news is you can integrate a little habit into your daily life to improve your hip mobility. Daily habits can be the most powerful tool to gain benefits out of it.
Asian Squat: "Deep Squat" is integrated in daily life in Asia.
It's incredibly important to take breaks from sitting on a chair or couch to do some movements. It can be a few minutes worth of stretching or walking but will make a tremendous difference in your hip mobility. If you're planted on your couch or your bed hunching over your laptop all day, it's not going to do anything good for your hips or the rest of your body, for that matter.
These days it can be incredibly easy to spend too long sitting, be it a desk job or too much time driving. This tends to lead to tight hips for many. In this modern computerized world, our body doesn’t tend to do as much movement through its ranges of motion as it should.
If we don’t use it we lose it.
Our body needs consistent exercise through our hips to stay mobile, strong, and healthy. That’s why finding a routine where you can work on your hip mobility consistently will increase your physical performance level for your handstand skills.
We all need to move and train actively hip range of motion, not only for handstand skills but also for whole body balance and better physical performance.
Do Some Hip Mobility Exercises:
The deep squat hold is an excellent position to gain mobility and strength in the hips, knees, ankles, and spine. Doing this position can improve your overall mobility and help out other athletic, functional movements. The hamstrings, inner thighs, lower back, glutes, and small stabilizer muscles surrounding the knees become more involved, and using more muscles can ultimately lead to increased performance.
Go as low as you possibly can, making sure you don’t raise your heels off the floor or slump forward. If you couldn’t drop your butt to just a few inches above the ground, you just discovered your problem.
“Sitting in a squat position is the most natural movement for the body,”
