    Tight Hips

    Does anyone stretch after doing legs at all? I've noticed I'm getting more and more tight in my hips. Why?

    I smash my hips, quads, and glutes with a lacrosse ball. I also like to do static holds in the lunge or split squat positions at the bottom of the movement to stretch my hip flexors. Don't ignore your glutes and spinal erectors - often if they're tight they'll cause limited mobility in the hip.

    At the intersection of hard work, nutrition, genetics, and gear.

    That hurts so ****ing bad. Smash the TFL and start bending and flexing at the knee. I swear I could feel it tearing
