Video Transcript:
Hey it’s Nick Ortego here. I’m
going to show you how to do this dynamic
mobility warm-up exercise. Use this before
running or working out especially if you’re
having trouble of getting depth in
your squat movement. Or if you’re just
looking to get better at hip mobility. So
we’re gonna start with going into a long
lunge position. Sometimes you can call
this the lizard position. One hand goes
down even with the foot. I’m gonna take
this knee and I’m gonna roll it in a
circle. So it’s going back. Knee’s coming
back and forward. I’m also going out
and in. We call this the
rolling lizard. I’ll go five times. I’m
using my hand to help that happen. Five
times one direction and then five times
the opposite direction. From the side,
looks like this. In the lizard position
out and then forward and back. five
circles one direction five circles the
other direction. You do one or more sets
on each side to get really engaged and mobile
in the hips and the inner thighs before your
workout. Give that a try. If you’ve got
