Softening the Spine

One of the most common movement issues we see is during the Hinge.


A hinge is when your hips move to the rear, causing your torso to fall forward.


Hinging is part of many exercises we do including: The KB Swing, Squats, Deadlifts, Cleans, and many more.

Our individual flexibility and anatomy will dictate how far we can go.
