When fitness walking or running, your shoulders rotate over your hips. Rotation is one of the foundational patterns of human movement, yet it is often overlooked in many traditional exercise programs. When you are in a standing position, your hip, abdominal, and upper-back muscles work together to create rotational movement. In fact, a rotational movement is part pulling and part pushing, making it a pattern that supports strength development in the other patterns. Examples include medicine ball chops, medicine ball twists, kettlebell windmills, and rotations with resistance tubing.

The body is organized into two primary segments, upper and lower, which are connected via the spine and trunk muscles. Planks and their many variations are an important exercise for creating stability in the muscles around the spine that link the upper and lower body. The fascinating thing is that the core muscles that connect the upper and lower bodies act as a corset. If they get stronger, they can actually help your stomach become flatter. When doing a plank, it's important to keep the hips and shoulders at the same height so the spine is in a relatively neutral position.

Tight hip flexor muscles and weak glutes could be a cause of low-back pain. The gluteus maximus is the primary muscle responsible for extending the hips and moving the lower body; this exercise can help improve strength in the glute muscles while stretching the hip flexors. This exercise teaches the foundational movement pattern of hip flexion and extension in a position that is safe for the spine, allowing you to improve the strength of your glutes so you can perform other exercises like squats and lunges more effectively. If you spend a long time in a seated position, this exercise is an excellent dynamic stretch that can help reduce tightness and restore range of motion (ROM) in your hips. The more mobility you have in the hips, the better it is for your low back.

Reverse Lunge With Overhead Reach
This exercise strengthens the abdominal and lower-body muscles from a standing position. Reaching overhead during a lunge lengthens the abdominal and hip muscles at the same time, which can help improve overall integration and coordination of how the muscles of the lower body and core work together. Stand with your feet hip width apart and with both arms by your side. Step back with your left leg to lower yourself into a lunge while reaching overhead with both arms. Lower yourself to a comfortable depth while keeping your spine long.
Transverse Plane Lunge With Lift. Rotation is one of the most important movements the hips are designed to perform specifically, the rotation of the pelvis over the thigh bone when the foot is fixed on the ground, and the rotation of the femur under the pelvis as the feet are rotating during a movement.
Rotational lunges take a hip through a full ROM to strengthen the muscles that control the movement as well as the bones and joint capsule where the movement occurs. Lifting a weight overhead at the end range of the transverse plane lunge lengthens the tissues along the front of the body, helping strengthen these core muscles while at the same time improving strength and mobility of the hips. This exercise could be challenging to learn and could cause some soreness because the muscles will be working in new and different ways, but it is so effective that it will soon be one of the exercises you like to dislike.
