for the kickoff of "50 days to 50 years," this personal trainer started me with hip extensions. "you're working the hip extensors. on all of us..." "the buttocks!"

"great exercise for women, because you guys like to work that part." "well, yeah!" we then moved to working my hip flexion. "you just worked the opposite - hip extenders - now we're going to go to the other side and work hip flexors." what's so nice about this exercise is being able to call the leg and hip muscles into motion on the leg that i currently can't walk on. "most of the motion we do during the day, climbing steps, walking, picking things
5:38 pm
flexors." and the workout finished working the adductors - the inside thigh. "you're doing a specific exercise for the inside of your thigh. and if you don't work that, what happens over time is..." "it gets flabby!" "not only that, but it gets weak." this particular exercise also calls on your core as you balance on your side. the hip exercises are a great way to kick off day one of "50 days to 50 years." and i'll blog each day's exercise on wistv.com and on my facebook and twitter pages. judi and dawndy ad lib. generic toss to break.
