The hip joint is a large and a major joint in the human body, as it allows us to perform basic daily tasks like walking or running. And because of its important role, the hip joint is the most flexible (along with the shoulder joint).
To strengthen your hips, you need to strengthen all the components that surround your hip joint. Those components (which include muscles, fibers, ligaments and bones) stabilize and make our hips do their work.
In this post, we will address the basic moves - with examples - that will make your hips stronger.
As mentioned above, the hip joint is very flexible and allows a large range of motion. That follows more muscles are involved to make your hip move so flexibly. So to strengthen your hips, you need to work more muscles than when strengthening other, less flexible, joints.
Some of the major muscles which stabilize and make our hips move are gluteus medius, gluteus maximus, hamstrings, psoas, quadriceps and thigh muscles. The following examples will include strengthening those muscles and their ligaments.
Those are some of the carefully selected exercises from our library to follow, for stronger hips:
