Why Soccer Players Need Strong Hips (and How to Build Them)

No matter what sport you are playing, there is always a specific area of your body that could benefit from a certain type of workout. In this instance we put our focus on soccer players and why they should be focused on their hip flexibility and condition. Stack outlines how flexion, extension, abduction and adduction functions to ensure the body remains in an optimal state. They also provide several guided exercise videos to get you started with great examples.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many signature soccer moves, such as breaking ankles during sharp opponent-directed turns, owe much to the strength of the player’s hips.
  • A player’s hips provide hip flexion, hip extension, hip adduction and hip abduction, all of which are crucial for many succor-specific requirements.
  • All explosive moves in the game of soccer, such as jumping and sprinting, get their power from hip extension.

“Hip flexor strength allows soccer players to strike the ball with a powerful follow-through, sprint at maximal speed and hone passing technique. But oddly enough, the hip flexors are the most ignored when it comes to bulletproofing the hips.”
