Hip Hinge Techniques - Foundry Personal Training Gym

Hip Hinge Techniques

New mini series on helping you to nail down your hip hinge technique.

Being able to correctly perform a hip hinge requires strength, core stability, body awareness, and mobility. This is what makes the hip hinge such a good movement pattern to include in your training programme.

At W10 we make sure our members are coached to perform each exercise safely and correctly.

Hip Hinges

It’s all in the hips!

Why so? Because along with pushing, pulling, squatting, lunging, rotating, and walking / running, bending is considered a major movement pattern.

Its important because hinging, or bending as we more commonly refer to it as, is where we work the glutes, hamstrings, core and lower back… the postural engine room.

So if you want to look good, feel good, live long, and move well, get some more hinging in your life.



Can you deadlift?

Continuing with part two of the hip hinge mini-series, we will be looking at the two deadlifts we use at W10.

The trap bar deadlift and the barbell deadlift.



How’s your hip thrust?

Today is the final part of our hip hinge series. We will be looking at the kettlebell swing. This is a powerful hip thrust exercise using your glutes and hamstring muscles designed to improve your strength, speed and power by training ideal hip extension.
