βœ–οΈ Pigeon Good Morning – Hip Mobility (MUST TRY)

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ This exercise combines the well known pigeon stretch with a seated good morning! Not only is it a unilateral movement, so working to close mobility discrepancies from left to right, it’s both stretching AND STRENGTHENING our hips! BOOM! If you haven’t gathered already – I LOVE THIS EXERCISE!

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ If excessively tight here, this can impact on VMO engagement and proper quadricep recruitment, influencing knee alignment.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Depending on current hip mobility (specifically external rotation) progressions are as follows (all 20 reps):
– Regular pigeon stretch on the floor hip hinging with assistance through both eccentric and concentric
– Regular pigeon stretch on the floor hip hinging with assistance only through concentric
– Regular pigeon stretch on the floor hip hinging without assistance
– Pigeon Good Morning head to foot
– Pigeon Good Morning with weight

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ NOTE: If you’re so tight in your hips you struggle to even sit in the regular pigeon stretch, elevate your butt off the floor to enable you to sit into the stretch more comfortably.

Be sure to give @kneesovertoesguy Ben Patrick a follow for this one! This guy knows his stuff!
