Hip Extension

Hip extension is an important exercise for hip function and glute activation.

Begin with the user comfortable and stable at rest.

For Anterior Pelvic Tilt users, take them into a posterior pelvic tilt first, then into extension.
Ensure the lumbar spine and lower ribs are not extended.

Activate the arms into internal rotation if the user is hyper extending into the lumbars.

Characteristically, these users are normally tighter in extension, and take them to their full range of movement.

For Posterior Pelvic Tilt users, take them straight into hip extension, as the curve of the Oov encourages a slight lordosis. This population tends to over extend at the hips, so perhaps don’t take them into full extension, stopping them just prior.
