A High Knee Hug is a dynamic warm up drill that opens up your hips by loosening off your hamstring and glute muscles. Due to its travelling and single leg nature, it also improves balance and coordination.
To begin this exercise, stand tall, chest open and shoulders back. Lift up one leg to a high knee position and hug your knee into your chest using both arms. Slowly lower that leg and repeat with the other as you continue to travel forward.
Posture is really important during this exercise. Avoid an excess lean forward or back by keeping your core engaged and your head looking straight ahead.
