Hip Mobility-Activation Pair for Single-Leg Stability

I hope you had a great weekend. Emily and I went to the Flyers vs. Penguins game yesterday to watch one of my Fitness Segments with Jim McCrossin on the JumboTron. Check out this picture my friend took with his phone:

The Flyers had been undefeated since our first segment rolled; I just assume it’s because of all the great training tips they’re getting during our first period video!

I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback about the mobility/activation dynamic warm-up pair concept that I learned from Nick Tumminello.  A couple weeks ago I posted a new hip mobility exercise I’ve been using a lot recently. Below is the video of that exercise and a video of the Lateral Lunge->Reverse Crossover Drop Lunge that I pair it with.

This exercise pair is a great way to improve hip range of motion and immediately reinforce multi-planar single-leg stability. Let me know what you think!
