Audience: Patients Purpose: I recommend a lot of hip exercises and consider variety and novelty important for people in pain and for athletic injury rehabilitation. This is just a catalog of pictures. Please don't do them and don't consider these to be the be and end all for exercises. Many other exercises can also be chosen to achieve your goals. Below is a catalog of a number of exercises that you can use to train/stress your hips.
Sit backwards into your heels to start this movement. We want the stress to go through the hips to a greater extent than the knees.
You can add a strap around your knees and push outwards if you want to increase the hip challenge
One Leg Lateral DeadLift
One Leg Squat with lateral leg lift
Lateral Shift Bird Dog (Like a kneeling Hip Airplane)
What is missing and is to come
