Move Better Monday: Hip Flexion PAILs/RAILs

Happy Halloween, folks!

For the next couple weeks, I'll be diving into different drills that will continue to improve your ability to squat. Like last week's ankle dorsiflexion drills, the drill I cover today has been an absolute game changer for my squat depth. 

Due to the nature of our work and life environments, we rarely flex the hip to its maximal range of motion. Today's PAILs/RAILs video will teach us not only how to flex the hip completely, but how to stabilize in this shortened range of motion as well.

Next week, I'll be touching on my favorite progression of this PAILs/RAILs variation, which will also improve common qualitative tests like the active straight leg raise and toe touch.
