A lot of people have problems with their hips and they don't even realize it. If you sit down all day at the computer or in a bus, you are not using your hip flexors. The hips problem can take many form: back pain, flexibility problems... If you want to get the most of your potential, training your hips is a must. I practice martial arts since I am 7 years old and let's say that I am not the flexible type. With the knowledge I acquire since that time, I know that a lot of movements comes from the hips so I wanted to increase my hip mobility. There is a lot of resources online to get some useful information.

I'm sure that you have some online resources that you would like to share with us. BJJ is all about the hips, so you've picked a correct audience. I look forward to your elucidations.

Hips...

Many muscles affect the flexibility of the hip, such as:

Hamstrings: biceps femoris, semimembranosus, semitendinosus.
Adductors: brevis, longus, magnus, gracilis, pectineus.
Glutes: maximus, medius, minimus.
Hip Flexors: psoas major and minor, iliacus, tensor fascia lata, sartorius, rectus femoris.

In turn these muscles allow the hip to perform different movements or "actions":

Flexion: lifting your knee to your chest.
Extension: opposite of flexion.
Abduction: moving your leg to the outside.
Adduction: opposite of abduction, returning to the midline, contracting adductors or inner thigh muscles.
External Rotation: rotating your whole leg on its vertical axis, contracting gluteals, piriformis, gluteus maximus and medius, the "deep six" (gemelli and obturators, quadratus femoris).
Internal Rotation: returning rotation towards the midline, contracting gluteus medius, all adductors including pectineus as well as sememembranosus and semitendinosus.

"Deep 6" = PQGOGO, you misplaced one.

What about the neuroanatomy?

You right! Since I mentioned piriformis before I did not repeat it, but yeah it was poorly written. Thanks.

Neuroanatomy? I only wrote as far as I know, and I don't know about neuroanatomy. Can you explain that?

I feel this thread will certainly become pretty interesting...

Don't you think the nervous system might play a role?
There is a lot of focus on muscles there, but no nerves.

Yes, I absolutely agree. As I said, I don't know much about the nervous system in order to write a very coherent and instructional reply. So what can you share about the topic?

Then it stands to reason any reply you give would be incomplete at best.

Muscles only do what the nervous system tells them to do.

OP mentions pain which is a nervous system experience.

Incomplete it is! Can you collaborate to complete it instead of giving a link. It defeats the purpose of a forum to some extent I think.

Sorry I haven't used forums for a while, I did not know you are used to "trolling" or "baiting", even on posts like this now, all good man XD! I fell for the trap.

We can still have a normal conversation or is that how the forum goes? Are we supposed to "troll" and that only?

I'm not trolling.
I'm suggesting you have a lot to learn.
This particular forum has higher standards than most.

Did you read the links?

We will guide a horse to water and even choke it out and push it in once in a while, but we cannot make it drink. Reading links and researching are a key element here. I can tell you that this link explains nuclear fission (www.google.com) and then write three paragraphs of bullshit to support my position and half the readers will assume that is what the link says.

So ... you know.

Actually no you did not, you failed revert to childish bullshit but instead toughened up a little and continue the discussion... now it looks like you are falling for it a little tho.

Most of the forum is serious. I really had no need to tell Chen not to troll or bait in the other thread, he knows, the comment was for you and new readers.
