You might think of your hips as just being the tissue that sits on your hip bones. That tissue does make up your hip muscles, but really, there is much more to the function of your hips.
A lot of muscles are needed to move your hips. If you have any tightness, cramping, pain or other problem in your hips, you might be dealing with weakness in any of those countless muscles. Luckily, there are some exercises that can fix the issues you might have.
Below, you will learn about the the best exercises for strengthening weak hip muscles that could be harming your bedroom skills.
“It is very common for people to suffer from weak hips,” says Dr. Theresa Marko.
“Much of this is because people today are sitting for longer periods, which leads to their hip flexors getting tight and their glutes to become overstretched and weak,” Dr. Marko says.
Proactively going through the following exercises will counteract weak hips and help you avoid injury and build hips powerful enough to deliver “OH” moments while in the sack.
Deadlifts are among the very best exercises for strengthening your hips. The secret is the “hip hinge” — one of the most vital functional movement patterns—deadlifts require you to pull weight away from the ground using strength mostly from your glutes and hamstrings (not your back, as many beginners think). Deadlifts improve your hip abductors and extensors.
2. Hip Thrusts
Hip thrusts are the best bedroom exercise you can ever do. They target your entire gluteus muscles, hip adductors, and your hamstrings. Your quads get targeted too, but they are not the primary muscle. This barbell-loaded move is the perfect practice for love making.
3. Power Cleans
Power cleans are essentially deadlifting a bar away from the floor and using a quick hip extension to pull the bar up. With momentum and a fast flip of your elbows, you will catch the barbell with your shoulders using the front rack position. Power cleans add strength and explosiveness to your hips. This move teaches you to focus on using your hips. And this comes in handy for many things, including getting down and dirty with your lady.
