For Healthy Hips, Backs, and Knees
Improve your hip mobility, strength, and control to keep them healthy, reduce the risk of injury, improve performance, and keep doing the things you love!
About the program
How long is the program?
The program is designed for 3 days per week at about 30 minutes per session. It will have two phases as part of the program, each lasting 3-4 weeks, for a total of 6-8 weeks of the program. You may continue the program for longer than 6-8 weeks if you prefer as well!
What equipment do I need?
- Booty bands
- A lacrosse or tennis ball
- PVC pipe, dowel, broom/mop, or other light stick of some kind
Can I do this with my other programs?
Yes! You can do this program by itself or with other programs. If you choose to do it in combination with another program, I recommend adjusting volume to the appropriate level and ensuring you allow 48 hours between working the same body part. You can use the hip prehab program’s warm up as your warm up for a lower body day, perform the prehab either before or after your workout, and then perform the cool down at the end.
Does doing this program prevent me from a hip, back, or knee injury?
This program can reduce the risk of injury, but you cannot eliminate the risk of injury in daily life or in sport. This program can help keep your hips strong to increase their capacity for things you may do, but unfortunately there is no way to guarantee you stay injury free.
I have ___ hip injury. Will this program help?
This program is NOT designed to treat any specific hip injury. It is designed to reduce the risk of injury via development of some of the smaller, often overlooked muscles of the hip, encourage balanced hip strength, and improve hip mobility/flexibility. If you currently have a hip, back, or knee injury, make sure you are cleared by either your physician, physical therapist, or other medical provider prior to starting this program.
Who is this program good for?
Whether you are just starting working out, have had a previous injury to the hip and want to prevent future injuries, or just place a high demand on your hip with your sport, you can benefit from this program! It can specifically be used for runners, martial artists, etc.
How much is the program?
$40 USD. I wanted to make a more accessible program for those who are unable to do my individualized workout programs or consult calls for whatever reason!
What if I don’t like the program?
As you receive the program once you purchase it, no refunds will be given. If you have any questions about if the program is right for you, please email email@example.com with any questions you have!
The hip is designed for mobility based on its anatomy. It has similar bone structure to the shoulder, but has a larger/deeper joint surface to bias stability compared to the shoulder. As with any joint, it is the role of both active (muscle) and passive (ligaments & joint anatomy) structures to create stability. This is why the program biases strength slightly, but also works on mobility and flexibility.
The hip is part of the core and impacts the low back, knees, and even ankles. By improving hip mobility and strength, you can take stress off the back and improve control of the knee and the ankle.
There are many muscles that make up the hip, but life often occurs with us moving forward and backward, with little side to side movement. With training, sometimes we can neglect the side to side movement as well, which contributes to weakening of the lateral or side hip muscles including the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. This program addresses these muscles, in addition to other muscles of the hip, to ensure balance of strength surrounding the joint.
Hip injuries can be caused by several things including trauma (a specific injury or event) or overuse (repetitive stress over time). By increasing the amount of stress the tissues can handle with strengthening and ensuring a good balance of muscle strength, you can reduce the risk of injury when combined with adequate rest and recovery!
prehab vs. rehab
Prehab focuses on injury prevention and is designed to reduce injury risk. Prehab is designed to be performed before an injury has occured.
Rehabilitation occurs after an injury has taken place. The goal is to calm the tissues down to allow for healing, restore mobility and strength, and improve function so you can return back to your prior level of function.
