The hip is a joint that needs to be both mobile and stable at the same time. For those that have stability issues in the hip, you will get a lot from watching this series of videos I found.
The first step to getting stable hips, is getting strong glutes…and a lot of us have problems simply activating the glutes. We can do as many great strength exercises as we want, but until we get that butt engaged, you are going to stress the wrong muscles. These videos contain great information and explains some even better hip stability exercises. They are very basic and are starting right from scratch and exactly what you need if you have inverted glutes 😉
Once you have mastered these exercises, keep them in your routine, but add some more challenging work. Activation comes first, we need to isolate the muscle in order for it to get going. Pretty soon you need to move into some more functional movement for the bum.
Check out these bum exercises, a post a wrote a while ago that explains and shows you some of the best exercises to get strong glutes. Glute activation is very important for getting stable and strong hips…but we must always remember to progress.
