Why Struggle with a Tight Hip and Back?

Let’s get to it!


You’re here because you’re frustrated with tight leg muscles causing you pain. You’re probably also sitting way too much and you’re feeling pain in your low back and hip. If you’re just trying to do simple every day movements but are feeling discomfort in areas of your lower body, you’re in the right place!

You don’t want band-aid solutions. You a permanent fix.

So let’s address the source of the problem.


Your hip is the central part of your body which allows for multidirectional bending and twisting and has a direct impact to your low back all the way down to your toes.

Therefore your hip is a vital component if not health and strong can lead to multiple areas of muscle pain.  

That’s why the main focus is restoring hip mobility and hip strength. Better hip mobility can also reduce or eliminate lower back, sciatica, knee and ankle pains stemming from overcompensation. And enhance your lower body exercise training.

If you’re wondering if your hip is the source of all your problems, let’s start off by performing a self hip mobility test. This is a self test I share with my one on one coaching clients. This will give you a starting point of how to proceed with your hip mobility results.

To Test Your Hip Mobility:

Here is 1 simple self test for your hip mobility.

  • Begin by sitting up nice and tall, cross one your right ankle over the left knee. For a visual (look at the photo above), imagine gently pulling your right knee towards your left shoulder. What you’re feeling for is stiffness or pain in your hip, glute, hamstring all along the movement. You can score your result out of 3 by how close you can bring your leg to your chest.
  • A score of 3 would be your leg is touching or fairly close to your chest. A score of 2 would be would be halfway to the chest and a 1 is below the half way point.
  • Now switch sides and try the same thing.
  • Can you get your near close to your chest? If not, you likely have limited mobility in your hip and possibly weakness in your muscles around your hip.

Coaching tip: Do the test and hold it for 60 seconds to initiate a hip stretch. After 60 seconds you may begin to feel some initial relief. If you experienced pain, stop the movement and consult your physician. You may need more personal guidance for proper treatment.
