Source: Overtime Athletes

With shelter-in-place restrictions going into effect across several states, it’s time to start considering how the current situation will impact player fitness.

Certainly we want our players to be staying fit in some shape or form, but we understand the athletes are limited by the equipment they have available.

If there are no weights at an athlete’s home, one thing he can do is focus on hip mobility. Athletes are going to be spending more time sitting in the coming weeks, so it’s important that they work on mobility in the hips so that they are not at risk for injury when they return to the field and weight room.

Chris Barnard is a strength and conditioning coach at Strength Camp, a hardcore athlete training facility in St. Petersburg, Fla., as well as author of multiple performance programs. He has worked with athletes at all levels and from many different sports to produce the highest level of performance in each.

Here is a 10-minute video with exercises for hip mobility.
