So, I decided that instead of writing about the exercises I utilize for injury prevention, I’d show you! Bear with me as this was really one of my first videos. I’ll be sure to utilize the help of a roommate next time.
The routine is as follows:
- Clams – 20 on each leg
- “Jane Fonda’s” – up/down, pulse and circles – about 20 x 3 on each leg
- Inner thigh – up/down, pulse and circles – I do 30 seconds of each
- Bicycles – 10 forward, 10 backward on each leg
- Bridges – I hold poses for 30 seconds, then do about 5 kickbacks with each leg
I do this routine within my core routine about 4x a week. Whether you are injured or not, I still think this is a great quick routine to ward off any impending injuries.
Enjoy!! Also, the tensor fascia latae (TFL) that I refer to is NOT a tendon, but a muscle. It still gets super tight at the top of your hip, but I got my terminology wrong and did not want to misinform.
