S4L5 Getting to Know the Hip Joints by Simply Better Movement published on 2017-06-27T02:26:00Z So where are your hip joints? The ball of the top of your leg in the socket of your pelvis? Feel with your hands and fingers on yourself as to where you think, feel or sense your hip joints to be. After this lesson you might find your idea has changed. You will move according to where you believe your hips to be. If you get an updated idea of where your hips are you will likely use your hips and pelvis in an easier more functional way. Many people think the actual "ball and socket" of their hips is much higher than it is and they bend and flex poorly from the hips as a result. They actually bend more from the low back and strain to reach the ground and squatting is impossible. Have some fun with your newly aware hip joints after this lesson. Maybe the floor feels closer and your squat may have gotten easier.
