Episode 05: It’s all in the Hips 150 150 Stephanie Thompson
In today’s episode I walk you through how to bring more muscles to the party in the hack, in your delivery & in your training. I share with you my favourite movements and go-to cue when it comes to trying to improve balance, power, confidence and decrease likelihood of pain?   Listen in to dive deeper in to how to improve your balance on the ice so you can hit the broom more often & improve your weight control regardless if you’ve been curling for 1 year or 50.     As promised here’s a link to my fave hamstring exercise (a staple from David Grey Rehab). [edit] If you’re listening going, “I wish I had some visual cues…” CHECK THESE OUT!!! (see below)
