We talk a lot about external rotation of the hip in order to find more stability when squatting but you can’t neglect hip internal rotation if you want a deeper squat.  Here’s a quick little mobility and integration pattern I like to help improve hip internal rotation.

In a supine position, place your feet outside of your hips.  Push your knee in and then reach forward at the same time.  You’ll feel a stretch in your groin.  To integrate that stretch with some patterning, perform squat crawls.  The trick is to move forward in the bottom of the squat without increasing the height of the shoulders.  You’ll also drag the knee and foot through as you move.

If you have any other mobility questions or would like to learn how we train here or to become a member at Steelworks Strength Systems, please fill out the form below!
