Dr. Jordan Emmil of Back In Motion Chiropractic & Sports Rehab in Beaverton, Oregon, demonstrates the hip hinge exercise:
The hip hinge is a fundamental movement pattern necessary for safe and efficient lifting. If you struggle with rounding your back while squatting, or have regular pain when bending over to pick things up off of the floor, this drill is essential for you to master. The movement is fairly basic, but attention should be paid to performing the exercise deliberately and with perfection. Please grab a staff member if you have any questions on how to perform this movement pattern - we are here to help!
