WHY: This exercise will get teach you the basic hip hinge. It is extremely important to learn how to move from your hips without moving from your low back. In the tall kneeling position, it’s much easier to learn to do this. Additionally, it helps open the hips!
HOW: Start out on your knees with your heels with your hips close to your feet. Keeping your core engaged, think about thrusting your hips forward and squeezing your glutes at the same time. Initiate the movement at your hips, without arching your back.
FEEL: You should feel your glutes performing the motion. Give your glutes a strong squeeze at the top of the motion.
