The hip hinge is a fundamental exercise that should be an integral part of every workout program. Mastering the hip hinge can help strengthen the posterior chain while helping build into other exercises. A common issue many exercisers have is they haven’t built up their posterior large muscle groups and then move into big movements like deadlifts and RDLs. Getting this movement down can help with daily life and potentially help alleviate any low back pain.

In this video Ron starts this hip hinge series by going over the basic set up and why you should be doing this exercise. He gives you some basic cues that you can perform during your next workout or even in your living room.
