Hip Hinge

You need to master this movement before moving on to deadlifts and romanian deadlifts

  1. Engage postural cues
  2. Screw feet into the floor (you should feel knees stabilise and bum tightened further)
  3. Hold stick in contact with lower back, mid back and head throughout movement.
  4. Keeping load above mid-foot and chin tucked in, push hips backwards.  You should feel and stretch in the back of your legs. Back should remain straight.
  5. When you feel the back of leg stretch begin squeezing bum tight and push back to standing posture.
