As someone who has suffered from multiple hamstring strains I've done quite a bit of reading and research on this topic. And while this topic is not going to be all inclusive in today's post, I am going to introduce you to a great video. In the below video Matt talks about how to perform a motor control exercise for the hips. What I love about this exercise is that you are working on hip stability on one side and mobility on the other.
We often think about single leg control but don't alway recognize it with our motor control prescriptions. A sprinter is a perfect example of someone who must have the proper balance of mobility and stability in each hip. However, its not just the hip that plays a large role in this exercise. It's the core muscles and the diaphragm that plays a role. Both of those components are vital for this exercise to be a benefit. For those of you without a band, I would encourage you to use the opening of a door.
