What Is A Hip Hinge?
I was asked by one of our Strength Club Members asked “What is a Hip Hinge”?
A hip hinge is a movement pattern where the focus is on loading up your hamstrings. Most people know how to squat but don’t know how to hip hinge.
The Hip Hinge is a “Hip Dominant” movement. Where the squat is a “Knee Dominant” movement.
If you want to get stronger, get faster, reduce chance injury and lift heavy weights with correct form it’s important to learn how to hip hinge.
Think of pushing your hips back and creating tension in your hamstrings and glutes.
