Only one video today, but I promise it’s enough. Jason Mortimer (JAOVideos) put out a new version of his clear hip video, and it’s definitely worth watching.
A couple of my favorite things: the cast drop to mats, specifically because so many gymnasts have a hard time with clear hips because they aren’t getting their shoulders back fast enough. This provides a safe environment for the to do it. The underswing rockers are also an easy drill to set up that means you don’t have to spot nearly as much. One thing that I specifically like in this video is how it’s broken down into each phase (you can see a cheat sheet on deconstruction I put together on this HERE), but it’s important when you start working clear hips that you aren’t skipping any of the phases.
