One of the best results gained from improving your fitness is reduced back and hip pain. As the muscles surrounding your spine and hips get stronger, they support the joints more effectively. A pain-free rider is also a more empathetic and effective rider.

Hip lift exercises really address the lower back and hips. This dynamic move stabilizes your core and activates your glutes. You can easily isolate one hip at a time and do variations of the hip lift. This teaches your body to stabilize one part while activating or engaging another independently, which also addresses rider imbalance.
