Hip Trigger Point Release with Acumobility Ball

Presented by Spartan Training®

This mobility exercise is awesome for releasing tightness in the glute muscles, a common area of restriction that can contribute to hip, knee and low back pain.


Start by lying your outer glute muscle on an Acumobility ball.  This is a 45-degree side-lying position.  Create stability by engaging the lat muscle, the opposite glute, and foot.  The bottom leg should then raise off the ground in a clamshell position trying to reach the top knee.  Make sure the top knee does not move.  Find 3 trigger points in the glute and do 8 reps on each.  Then move into the knee drive position where you bring your knee to chest and then into full extension.  Repeat 8 reps on each spot.
