Weekly Training Tip #15 - Banded Hip Flexion

Targeted movement pattern similar to what is seen in the drive phase of a sprint. This tool is used to add training volume with the hip flexors of athletes. Keeping the band low on the foot also works an athlete's ability to maintain dorsiflexion. It is important to keep your hips pressed forward and maintain alignment from your shoulders to your feet. The athlete then drives their knee to their chest and holds for a one-count. If the athlete is unable to drive their knee to their chest due to contacting the ground, or their hips coming up, you can elevate the surface on which their hands are resting. This will encourage full range of motion. A great exercise for all athletes, especially sprinters.
