For all those athletes that have super tight hip flexors (psoas) and have a forward chest lean in their squats, here is a variation of my fav banded distraction hip complex!
Check out the video and give it a try and let me know what you think 🙂
- We did this workout June 6th, we would like to see you challenge yourself by lifting heavier (5-10lbs more) this time around.
- The focus still is on perfect form for each rep and muscular strength rather than endurance. This means, choosing a heavier weight and doing less rounds.
- Choose a weight that you can do a round every 1 -2 minutes. If you are completing 20 or more rounds (and you are not RX), then you have scaled too much.
