Why Are We Not Using the Hip Muscles

While doing most exercises, the body part, which is the most ignored is the hip muscles. Regardless of the possibility that you frequently perform work-outs, people fail to look at the super essential muscle – the hip.

The hip muscles are the foundation for one’s stability. While these muscles are unquestionably an essential part, especially for women, many people fail to give importance in strengthening it. Our hips are not only responsible for the shaking dance moves we perform out once in a while. Rather, they are a fundamental part to be focused for runners, bikers, and non athletes like all of us..

The foremost reason of having hip related problems, is the time we spend on sitting for much of the day. Having frail hips can make way to the following:

  • Poor mechanics with the development of hip muscles
  • Back, or knee agony
  • Lower back pain
  • Disrupts your posture
  • Gives rise to knee pain on the longer run
  • Muscle imbalances

As women tend to have wider angles between their hip and knees, they are put at a higher risk of hurt than men. it is a key factor for women to work on their hip muscles to keep them fit and mobile.

Fortunately there are some simple approaches to fortify your hip muscles. Let us take a look at those exercises one by one. The first and foremost basic exercise, is the Single Leg-Hip Lift. This exercise can be done anytime, but particularly works well before a strengthening workout. The next is the – hanging knee lifts. These are great beneficial exercise movements, that results in effective strengthening of your weak hip muscles. Even simple leg lifts can help in the process of strengthening of one’s hip muscles.

Though there are many exercises to strengthen your hip, one just needs to pick up the right technique. One should keep in mind always, a good hip workout will improve the joint’s flexibility as well as your leg and core strength.

Now that you’re equipped with these extending and reinforcing moves, rehearse them all the time. Keep in mind, the more grounded your hip flexors are, the better shot you have of keeping them damage free and moving better!
