In this video what I wanted to go through was 3 Plate Exercises that help save your hips.
Having strong hips helps in many ways. It helps the hips out but it also helps out the back and knees when it comes to injury recovery, injury prevention, better movement and increased performance.
I will get Orsy to go through them.
3 Plate Exercises to Help Save Your Hips
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
#1 – Plated Hip Bridge Exercise
Orsy is resting her mid-back, shoulders on the bench. She is grabbing the weight plate putting it on her hips, dropping her hips and then coming back to straight. Again, dropping the hips and coming back to straight. She has her knees, hips, and shoulders in good alignment and her shin nice and vertical.

I will get Orsy to go through 5 or 10 repetitions.
#2 – Weight Plate Bench Squat
She is having the weight out front squatting down and coming back up, squatting down and coming back up.

We are working the glutes, the hamstrings, and the quads as well. And just like the other exercise, we will go through 5 or 10 repetitions.
#3 – Weight Plate Single Leg Squat
She has the weight plate up by her shoulder. She is going to stand on one leg and she is going to squat down. She is doing the single leg squat with the right leg and she is holding the weight with the opposite leg. She is going to do 5 or 10 repetitions.
Weight Plate Single Leg Squat
With that last one, we have an offset load so it challenges the hip, the knee, and the core more. It is a good balance exercise and a good hip stability exercise.
Give those 3 exercises a go. They can easily be done with a weight plate and a bench. They will help you save your hips but also help your back and knees as well.
