This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the hip flexor rocking courtesy of Tim Anderson of Original Strength. 

You should do this because–  Good hip mobility is needed for most of your leg training and this will make your lower back very happy, whether you train or not.

Makes your everyday life easier because–  having good movement in your hips will make your life easier in and outside of the gym, especially if your lower back is an issue.

Form tips –  Keep your head up and make sure to squeeze your glutes and not over-arch your back.  Do 10 reps daily or include this in your warm up before you get after it
