The ability to control your center of gravity (which is located in your pelvis) from your hips is foundational skill for everyday life, athletic performance and the health of your hips and spine.

The Pelvic Clock

A helpful neuromuscular activation exercise for hips and core

To begin, lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat, and visualize your pelvis resting on a clock face. This exercise will explore developing coordinated activation to control the position of the pelvis.

Practice along with the video below. Pause the video as each new movement is introduced. Practice until you feel comfortable with that movement, then resume the video.

As a semi pro ultra runner I’m always looking for a tune up to make the many miles I run more efficient. Brian helped me rework a movement pattern in my shoulder, and abdominal rotation resulting in a 30 second per mile speed up, while feeling like I’m running with the same easy effort.
I also enjoy Scott’a yoga classes to help me relax and reset my very stiff body.
