Tight hips? Besides being uncomfortable, it can lead to back pain. When your flexors are tight you will have a tendency to lean forward while squatting. A forward lean will shift your center of gravity anteriorly and increase activation of your quadriceps while decreasing activation of your glutes. As a result, when you stand up your flexors are going to stay shortened, which will contribute to an anterior pelvic tilt and make it really difficult to adequately activate the posterior hip muscles. Basically, you need to stretch!!
Teamed up with Fitspot & Muscle Milk for an opportunity to lead a bootcamp for this amazing company called Mail Chimp. I use them for my email blasts to clients, and was ecstatic to be able to work with them. They were a great group of down to Earth individuals, and it was a complete pleasure. We thoroughly had a good time, and I was able to provide them with a fun, yet challenging experience. It really put things into perspective for me because although they’re not a fortune 500 company, they’re decently reputable and respected. It’s definitely a personal accomplishment within itself.
