How to prep your hips for squatting

This programming block we are focussing on the squat to box.  Next programming cycle this will morph into a back squat focus.  

Why am I telling you this? Well I want your hips to be mobile and ready for all the squatting in the coming months.  :-)

We can only do so much in classes to get you mobile with the warm up and warmed down with the accessory work.  The rest is up to you.  I often hear people say they aren't quite sure what to do...  Or they are bored with this or that stretch...  Or they just don't wanna!!! (insert toddler tantrum here)

Who better to talk us through the ins and outs of hip mobility for the squat than Kelly Starrett and his trusted Mobility Wod.

A few years back he did a three part video on your hips and the squat.  I think it is excellent.  Which is why I am sharing them below with YOU... Yes you.  


Please give these videos a watch.  Be proactive about going after these stretches and movements. I promise it will help you.  :-)
