Got a simple squat test for you to take today.
This will be a great indicator of your hip mobility, and ability to move well in general.
You can do this RIGHT NOW.
It will only take about 30 seconds.
The results will be super powerful.
So stop what you’re doing, and give it a try:
Simple Squat / Hip Mobility
1 – Start by standing in front of a wall, so that your chest is about 8-12 inches away.
2 – Do five simple body weight only squats.
3 – On the fifth and final rep, hold in the bottom position for a good 10 seconds.
Here’s a quick video on how to do the drill:
How’d it go?
Go through the checklist below, and see how you did. Answer each question yes or no:
Y/N – My weight wanted to shift to my toes as I lowered myself into the squat
Y/N – My body wanted to tip forward and my face felt like it was going to hit the wall
Y/N – My knees caved in
Y/N – My feet rotated out to be able to get the tops of my thighs below parallel
Y/N – I had to get my feet super wide to get the tops of my thighs below parallel
Y/N – I was not able to get the tops of my thighs below parallel
If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, you need to work on your squats!
If you don’t, in the short term, you’re decreasing your performance, and making your workouts harder than they need to be.
If you don’t, in the long term, you are likely to get injured.
But the GOOD news is, you can do something to fix these issues!
One of the first places to start, especially for most dudes, is by working on your hip mobility.
Unlock Your Hip Flexors is a complete program that, with just a few minutes of work per day, will have you moving and performing better in no time.
