I'm getting a lot of hip mobility suggestions though. Perhaps I was too hasty to say I'm giving it up. The problem with hip mobility work is there are a hundred gazillion exercises to choose from and no article on the matter seems interested in presenting a minimalist approach. And of course, every article says it's best to do this stuff as often as possible throughout the day. Ok, but what if we can only set aside a dedicated block of time for it (x sets for x reps). It's actually similar to foam rolling (suggested done as necessary). Well, I've seen lots of people in the gym who squat much more than me and don't even know what functional fitness means. All they want is hypertrophy. They somehow are pain free, but I bet they could still benefit from hip mobility and foam rolling. It's actually really frustrating being someone who cares about the bigger picture and yet has managed to get injured twice in the mere 10 months I've been lifting.
No announcement yet.
