Hip Flexor / Hip Extensor Force Couples

The main problem is a lack of synergy and force couples between the hip flexors and hip extensors, which can lead to compensations and decrease overall efficiency in movement. Therefore, it is important to have a strong link between these antagonist and agonist muscle groups to optimize function and reduce the risk of injury.

Essentially, there’s a need for a well-designed exercise program that considers the force couples around the hip joint to promote optimal muscle balance and function. Therefore, it is essential to address this problem by implementing an appropriate exercise program to achieve optimal hip health and performance.

If you are interested in improving the synergy and force couples between your hip flexors and hip extensors, please don’t hesitate to contact me (or your local personal trainer!) to help develop a customized exercise program. Together, we can work towards a future where you have stronger, more balanced muscle function around the hip joint and a better overall quality of life.
