Best way to loosen hips (Read 2130 times)

      I think it's actually slow running that makes my hips tight, not too much running.

     

    So I would say short hill charges and strides are a safe thing to do during taper and should help.

     

     

    Wow, this is me in a nutshell.   My hips are total crap.   

     

    I need to do my intervals, stairs, and stretches or else I can barley walk.

      So, you're saying you stagger?

        Wow, this is me in a nutshell.   My hips are total crap.   

         

        I need to do my intervals, stairs, and stretches or else I can barley walk.  

        The best exercises for that are hops.

        There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

          Hops? We've come too far to derail the thread now by talking about beer.

           

          Hills can be tough on the groin and psoas and you might get mixed improvement/stress in the quads and glutes. Strides might be a safer bet, though coming through in a way that enables you to do the hills probably bodes better. Just a few strides can go a long way, though.

           

          If you focus on getting more sleep, healthy eating, and not bludgeoning your legs with hard road runs, then you can probably get your hips back fairly soon. Sometimes it takes weeks to fully recover from a race or hard workout.

           

          I find that sitting is the thing that tightens my hips the most. Nothing like a sedentary day of work to jeopardize a workout! My hips are infinitely better on weekends or days I'm active at work. Have you been sitting a lot lately?

            The best exercises for that are hops.

             

             

            What are hops?    And don't say beer, I gave that up.

              Well, hops was just a play on the "barley" walk, but what about actual hops?  Like low intensity plyo stuff?  Of course, not in any taper phase.

                And yes, I'm going to have to change my profile.    Life without beer, who knew it exsisted?
