The “90-90” position is one that I have found to be one of the most beneficial for Jiu-Jitsu.
Simply, it checks A LOT of boxes. This position can improve internal and external rotation, protects the hips, knees, and even the low back from injury, and will make your S-Mount in BJJ better in your ability to safely get into the position, maintain position, and go for submissions from the position.
In this video we work primarily on the back leg which can be focused on working the Internal Rotation component of hip mobility.
We start with a basic stretch, then a muscle activation exercise, and end with the most difficult portion where we hover the hip and not only activate the muscle around the hip, but get a dynamic stretch as well.
This position is also one that I delve into in my new course “Grappling-RX – Optimized Hips.” Find out more about my brand new course at https://www.grapplingrx.com/optimizedhips
