There are a few situations like getting off the ground, taking a big step up a high stair, that seem a lot hard then they should be. We have that moment where we can get little nerves that we won’t actually be able to stand up. We understand how scary and in some ways helpless this can make you feel. We want you to know your not alone. Clients during there goal setting often state that they just want to be able to get off the ground or make it up a few steps in their house.
Here’s how you get rid of that feeling and make sure you don’t have to worry about that situation next time it comes around.
Simply in this order
- we assess the current Hip range of motion,
- Look at ability to tuck your hips ( do you know how to move those hips)
- Glute strength ( does your but work )
- Single leg strength ( ability to set up and down, the height which you can do that )
Want to hear more about how we take these and put them together in a way that best fits your needs. Feel free to schedule a call with us.
Hip range of motion is important. It either allows you to be in a bad or good position. If your in a bad position and have poor single leg strength good luck standing up. If you are in a good position it gives you a much better fighting chance.
Tucking your hips will help you not overextend and keep your back safe.
Your glutes are like the cap on a wine bottle if they don’t work the wines gose bad fast.
Finally, Single leg strength can be one of the most undervalued aspects of strength. Walking is one step after another, most activities in life happen on one leg. Using movements like
- Step downs
- Assisted Split squats
- Front foot elevated split squats
To improve overall leg strength and balance. We suggest that you start working on your single leg strength. All you need is a stair or something steady to step up and down.
This can help keep your safer getting up and down and should make going up and down stairs easier. If you have any questions about why we use these movements and which movements are right for you please feel free to Reach out.
