Movement Monday: HIP MOBILITY

And just like that Movement Monday is back! Recently our Movement Practitioner Will Valdes ran his first marathon in under 4h! Training for a marathon is no joke and can leave you stiff and sore in all the wrong places.

The idea for this session is recovery-based, and it’s all about dissociation from one hip/pelvis from the other. Through the amount of mileage that is accumulated in training it is very common and natural to use one side more than the other. Doing a session like the one that follows can begin to “recalibrate” your lower extremity to work together more effectively. ⁣
