Physical Therapist Dr. Colin Miller demonstrates with resistant bands exercises that can be performed for hip mobility.
If you are having pain or difficulty with your squat or deadlift and stretching hasn't seem to help it might not be tight muscles that are holding you back, but actually a tight joint.
These mobilizations will increase the mobility of the hip joint. Allowing for better movements such as flexion and internal rotation of the hip, which are needed for better depth of the squat. Give these a try before your next lower body exercise.
