Restore: the hips program

take your hip mobility to a new level! 

Welcome! Get Ready to Train Your Hips Like Never Before –

and Explode Your Potential!  

Do you remember the first time you felt that muscle “buzz?”  You know what I mean, right?

It’s an almost indescribable euphoric, post-workout feeling that settles in and radiates through your entire body after a hard workout. It’s an addictive feeling – almost like a drug.  But it’s legal. And so incredibly satisfying. 

Some call it a “runner’s high.”  All I know is from that first moment on, you can’t wait to get back out there on the roads or trails to feel it, again and again. 

So, where did it all go wrong?

For many, it starts with that dull ache in the low-back that seems to radiate down the leg and force a limp.

For others, it’s a much sharper pain deep in the hip that calls on a serious dose of Motrin and a call to the therapist. 

From the first moment that you felt either of those sensations or something like them, euphoria turned to frustration – and your life changed. 

The euphoric “buzz” that you so fell in love with after those first few amazing workouts, all of a sudden felt like it was light-years away.  

Those feelings of frustration and fear – it’s why I created this program and others here on this website. 

Optimal joint mobility – set up by proper alignment and control – stimulates the production of synovial fluid, while optimal rest (sleeping on your back or in a non-weight bearing position!) allows the joints to decompress.

My friend, I’m very confident this program will absolutely change your athletic life. 

If that sounds like a strong statement to make…well, maybe so.

But…here’s the thing: without a good functioning set of hips that move well and are stable and strong, virtually every part of human movement (forget about challenging sports like running) can be a struggle.

With this program, you’ve got the opportunity to take your HIP training to a new, higher level.

It’s all here, waiting FOR YOU! 

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”

-Bruce Lee

So, what IS this program, you ask? 

It’s a comprehensive, systems and science-based approach to improving hip mobility, that takes into account virtually everything we know about the human hip girdle, circa 2020.  

Now before you move on, take 2+ minutes and watch this video in which I discuss the layout of the program and how you’ll proceed. Again, welcome aboard!

What are your most important keys to success?

There are two that come immediately to mind: 

1. Take a deep breath and approach it ONE-STEP-AT-A-TIME. 

2. Commit to the process. It won’t be easy but it’ll be worth it.

So what do I mean by the “process?”

I assume you brush your teeth every day, yes? Or do you do it occasionally, whenever you might think about it – maybe once a week or once every couple of weeks? 

If you took a “whenever I occasionally think about it” approach to your teeth, you’d soon be discussing dentures with your dentist…OR trying to figure out a way to explain to your kids why you have those black holes in your teeth!

We brush daily because it’s a habit we’ve engrained over time, AND MOST importantly because it’s the only way to truly care for our teeth and be relatively sure we get to keep them throughout our entire life.

Hip mobility training is the same way. 

You won’t need hours a day or even AN hour a day, but you WILL need to devote at least 10 minutes a day, EVERY DAY, to improving passive flexibility, hip motor control, and joint range of motion. 

Not to mention soft tissue health, which for you MIGHT be a big priority. 

What other keys to success are there? 

  • Prior to jumping into the training, take the time to read and learn about the overall process, from assessment to training, in this program.
  • Take the time to assess your own level of passive hip flexibility and hip joint range of motion, BEFORE embarking on training mobility.
  • Have an open mind, and be willing to learn about some important training methods that are likely to be completely new to you. 
  • Simplify every step in your own mind. While some of the terms may sound complex, the actual process IS simple. 
  • Commit to this process. Sustainable, long-lasting changes to muscle and connective tissue don’t happen overnight.
  • Be patient and persistent. So much of your learning will be achieved through your own practice and discovery…

Onward we go!
