How Slow Can You Go?
How SLOW can you Hip Circle?
How much TENSION can you create?
Hip C.A.R’s (Controlled Articular Rotations):
– Term and movement developed by @drandreospina and the FRC systems
– Also known as “Hip Circles”
Hip C.A.R’s are one of my favorite mobility exercises that I do every day.
➡Each rep should be challenging
➡Cramping while performing these is normal
➡MOVE AS SLOW AS POSSIBLE
➡Challenge your end ranges
➡Deep breath – challenge end range some more
Why I love Hip Circles:
➡They helped me recover from back pain
↪By mobilizing my hips
↪And helping me understand lumbopelvic disassociation
➡They also helped me get rid of months of anterior hip pain
🔊Turn up the volume and pay attention to my breathing!
✔When I hit my “perceived” end range, I take a deep breath and challenge each range further
✔Notice I am moving entirely at my hip joint – NOT at my low back
➖ Something that I could not do before
✏ I am aware I need to work on hip extension but it’s gotten much better!
