After 17 years of strapping on 60 to 70 pounds of camera gack I've come to the realization that our craft may require a little more prep and maintenance than what we give it.
2 years ago I had meniscus surgery and was forced to rehab the knee. In the process I realized I had completely neglected a vital part of what propels us..........hips. Who works out their hips? I don't....ever. until I experienced some issues with my knee after the rehab.At the request of my doctor I started working my hip flexors and was amazed at the stability and power I gained by doing simple exercises that Jack Lelane used to do on TV back in the day in his one piece jump suit.
So simple but so effective. Not to mention the flexibility and strength.....so do some basic hip exercises.
Your knees,calves, thighs, butt and back will thank you.
