Hip Power & Pain: An Experiential Seminar For Leveling Up Your Performance – June 19th from 11am to 2pm at Albany CrossFit.
It’s no secret that the hips are the powerhouse of the body or that they frequently get tight and painful. The real secret is – what are the hips? What aren’t the hips? How do the hips, legs, pelvis and core depend on one another but also get tangled up and inefficient? This workshop will be a deep dive into the biomechanics of this essential yet often misunderstood foundation of the body. You will get a vast upgrade of your anatomic and functional knowledge of the hips as well as highly practical exercises to use with yourself and your clients for mobilization, activation, and power. Said simply, at the end of this workshop, you’ll be smarter, faster, stronger, and more mobile. BOOM!
An athlete’s maximum performance is rooted in the mastery of basic functional movement. Failures to understand and integrate these fundamentals are the difference between winning or losing, injury or PRs, efficiency or burnout. This seminar will intellectually and kinesthetically transform your understanding and utilization of your hips, pelvis and low back in all manners of activity from getting more out of your Kettlebell swings to simply walking. The presentation will be immersive: involving lecture, power-point, physical exercises and Q&A
– Specific functional anatomy and kinesiology of the legs, hips and lumbo-pelvis
– How to move your legs, hips and low back independently
– How to move your legs, hips and low back cooperatively
