How to treat outer hip pain for BJJ athletes

BJJ practitioners deal with injuries frequently. Hip injuries can be a both annoying and very limiting injury to deal with. The importnce of strong, mobile, and flexible hips is crucial for hitting submissions and maintaining or regaining guard. My training partner had pain in the outer hip and asked for a few suggestions. He has been performing the exercises consistantly and has had excellent results, improved hip motion, and most importantly improvement in pain levels. Give some or all of these stretches and exercises a try. They will help improve your hip health and mobility. Make sure to perform exercises to comfort and discontinue if you have any pain. Send and questions below and I would be happy to try and help and may use your question for an upcoming video.
