BMC Monthly Free Event, Rosana Corral, Hip Articulations
This is a ladies only event!
At this months meeting, Rosana Corral will be demonstrating how to perform hip articulations. Many of you have watched the latest music videos from Hip Hop to Afro Funk so your aware of what hip articulations are. So maybe you've always wanted to learn but were too shy or didn't have guidance. So now that your reading this you have no more excuses come on over and learn first hand how to take control of your hips.
The movements that can be carried out at the hip joint are listed below, along with the principle muscles responsible for each action:
Flexion – iliopsoas, rectus femoris, sartorius
Extension – gluteus maximus, semimembranosus, semitendinosus and biceps femoris
Abduction – gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and the deep gluteals (piriformis, gemelli etc.)
Adduction – adductors longus, brevis and magnus, pectineus and gracillis
Lateral rotation – biceps femoris, gluteus maximus, and the deep gluteals (piriformis, gemelli etc.)
Medial rotation – gluteus medius and minimus, semitendinosus and semimembranosus
The degree to which flexion at the hip can occur depends on whether the knee is flexed – this relaxes the hamstring muscles, and increases the range of flexion.
Extension at the hip joint is limited by the joint capsule and the iliofemoral ligament. These structures become taut during extension to limit further movement.
