Exercise with tubing provides many benefits. Exercise tubing is lightweight, portable and comes in several resistance levels. One exercise band can be used many ways to strength multiple body parts. There are many exercises you can perform with tubing to target the hip musculature.
The benefits of hip strengthening have been proven in research many times. Evidence has shown that proper strengthening of hip musculature can reduce incidence of low back pain, hamstring muscle strains, knee pain and ankle sprains. For example, strengthening the gluteus medius hip muscle can help control unwanted movement of the thigh bone when performing functional movements such as squatting, running and jumping. Strengthening the gluteus maximus muscle will help stabilize the low back and sacroiliac joints reducing incidence of low back pain.
