1. **Hip Circles** _Instructions:_ Stand tall with your hands on your hips. Keeping your feet grounded, rotate your hips in a circular motion, making as large a circle as you can. Complete 10 oscillations in one direction before switching to the opposite direction. _Tips:_ Make sure your movement is slow and controlled. Maintain upright posture and avoid moving the shoulders or upper body. _Body Portion Being Trained_: This exercises targets the hip joint and the surrounding muscles - gluteus, adductors, piriformis, and hip flexors - enhancing your dynamic flexibility and stability. 2. **Pigeon Pose** _Instructions:_ Start in a tabletop position. Bring your right knee forward towards your right hand, placing it on the floor. Extend your left leg behind you, with your foot pointing straight back. Lean forward as much as you can comfortably do so and hold this pose for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side. _Tips:_ For beginners, don't worry about leaning too far forward. The more you practice, the more flexibility you will gain. _Body Portion Being Trained_: This yoga pose primarily stretches the piriformis and other hip rotators, also improves flexibility in your hips and glutes. 3. **Lunges** _Instructions:_ Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart. Take a step forward with your right foot, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle and the other knee hovers above the ground. Push back to the start position, then repeat on the other side. _Tips:_ Keep your upper body straight and your shoulders relaxed during the exercise. Engage your core in this position. _Body Portion Being Trained_: Lunges primarily target the quadriceps, but they also engage the calves, glutes, and hamstrings, increasing overall hip flexibility and stability. 4. **Leg Swings** _Instructions:_ Stand upright and hold onto a wall or a stable object for support. Swing your right leg forward and backward in a comfortable range of motion. Repeat 10-15 times, then switch to the left leg. _Tips:_ Keep your core engaged and maintain a slight bend in the standing leg. The swings should be controlled movements, not momentum-based. _Body Portion Being Trained_: Leg swings improve flexibility in your hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps, essentially helping your overall hip mobility. 5. **Frog Stretch** _Instructions:_ Start on your hands and knees. Gradually widen your knees until you feel a comfortable stretch in your groin muscles. Ensure your ankles are in line with your knees and your feet are turned outwards. Lean forward on your hands and hold the stretch for about 30 seconds. _Tips:_ Make sure your hips are pushed back and your lower back is flat. Do not force your knees too far apart and stop if you feel any discomfort. _Body Portion Being Trained_: It primarily targets the inner thighs and groin muscles, indirectly benefiting the hip mobility. Practicing these exercises regularly can greatly improve your hip mobility for rock climbing. Always focus on maintaining correct form and listen to your body to avoid overstretching or injuries.
