When it comes to training, I always talk about how we need to have adequate mobility for the tasks we place on our body. Just about every lower body exercise requires hip extension to complete, and lacking mobility or control at the end range can cause breakdown in technique.
Lack of hip extension is more common than you may think; improving it can improve function and performance. Check out the video below to learn how.
End Range Lift Offs serve as a great exercise to either prepare your body for your workout or as a mobility drill completed on a day to day basis to focus on your mobility limitations. Remember the goal here is to challenge your hip extension! So, if you can easily lift your leg off the floor, you are taking it too easy on yourself and are not working your end range mobility.
Move Well, Stay Strong.
