Mobility Monday: Hip Demands of the Upright Torso

By: Joel Luedke


It is always good to have an assessment tool to see where you are at and how far you have come along with your work.  This is a great one to see how well you are able to move through your hips in order to keep an upright torso when squatting.  We want to be able to maintain an upright torso as much as possible when we squat.  It will not only help save your back but it also will show how much you are able to move through your hips.  We have world record holder squatter Andy Askow in this VIDEO who echoes this same point. 


Start with this simple test and see where you are at and start fixing it all below.

Things it Helps:
-Squat Form
-Tight Hips
-Painful knees (when squatting)





Here is a video to start getting after it and and fixing it.
