Deep Squat Hip Prying

  • HOW: Get set up in a standing position in your ideal squat stance and form. To begin the exercise, squat down as low as you can and hold the bottom of the deep squat position. Then with your arms and elbows positioned on the inside of your thighs, one at a time try to rotate your hip/knee out as far as you can and push against your thigh with your elbow to help. Hold the end position for a moment, then return to starting position and repeat on the opposite side. Repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like a groin and hip stretch. You will also feel your glutes and deep hip rotator muscles working as you try to rotate your hip out.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not lose the deep squat position, do not excessively shift your weight, do not lose balance.
