You’re now ready to get started on assessing CARs, as part of an overall SELF-ASSESSMENT.
1. Begin with Controlled Articular Rotations, or “CARs” for the HIPs. This is one important way that you’ll begin to assess YOUR hip mobility and learn where you may have areas of opportunity to improve.
2. If you haven’t recently, go to the Performance Portal and access the Run-Specific Flexibility assessments. Go through this. You will certainly want to get a sense of your overall hip oriented muscle lengths, ESPECIALLY if you are a runner or would like to learn more about where YOU may have areas to improve. Refer to the menu to your left to go to that area of the program.
3. Have you assessed or looked at “Basic Axial Hip Rotation?” Learn more about this particular motion and whether or not you have this ability to move your hips in this way.
