Put the hip circle around you knees and walk with long strides for a great Dynamic warmup
Strengthen hip abductors and external rotators
Teaches you to push your knees out while squatting
From a leading name in Crossfit and Powerlifting performance gear, SlingShot, comes the SlingShot Hip Circle. The Hip Circle can be used for hip and glute activation/strength as well as dynamic warm up. Simply put the circle around your knees and go for a long stride walk. You will not only get your hips and glutes warm, but your entire body. You can fix up your weak and painful "granny hips" by putting on the circle and walking forward, backward, and side to side. You can use it to squat, sumo Deadlift (feet out wide) or while simply walking on the treadmill! Many coaches like Kelly Starrett and Jesse Burdick love using the circle to cue their athletes to force their knees out while squatting and sumo deadlifting.
The version 2.0 Hip Circle is a stiffer material that provides more resistance.
The Grippy Hip Circle® has a tacky strip along the inside of the circle to keep the Hip Circle® in place while using.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Super awesome tool in my gym bag that helps me warm up and gives me great feedback for spreading my taint when I squat (See SuperTraining06 YouTube channel for more detailed instructions). Every so often, when my SlingShot gear starts to smell like Mark Smelly Bell, I just hand wash and hang dry for a day. Super useful tool for teaching the squat and really gives me constant feedback to keep good form as the weights go up. Next week, I'm adding the big five pound plates to the bar after squatting the bar and one 2.5 pound plate each side. Feeling strong but don't want to rush myself!
I ordered the size for my weight as the instructions suggested but it is so small i can't even use it to do my leg exercises. I use one at my trainer every week and wanted one for home use but should have ordered a larger size. This one is useless to me.
I'm using this to work on my squats. It's been successful so far! I can now squat below parallel during my WODs. I'm quite pleased with this purchase. I can really feel my quads and glutes when I use this!
