Mobility: "Knee Hug"

Knee Hug

OBJECTIVE: Open up glutes & hips.

  1. Stand upright.

  2. Quickly pull knee straight up then “hug” knee bringing it closer towards chest.

  3. Alternate legs in-between each rep.

  4. Perform 5-10 reps per side.

Exercise Figure Tips: As long as you can grab your knee or lower leg somehow this is a good one for the booty and hips.  For a little more "hip focus" just pull the knee towards the middle of your body instead of straight back.

  • There are some that are too tight to reach the lower leg or knee or lack the balance to stand on one leg during such a movement.  If needed, you can perform a partial knee hug while seated in a chair if the standing version is too hard.

*Note: This exercise is intended for "normal healthy" individuals.  If you have an injury, or abnormal pain is present,
see your physician or a certified physical therapist before continuing your exercises.
