In this article a progressive series of exercises to enhance motor control or movement competency of the hip are described. The training begins with control of center of mass during forward leaning by the muscles of the sole of the foot. This progresses to a novel lunge exercise emphasizing eccentric quadriceps control the knee. Then gluteal training is shown in a modern variation on Tai Chi along with a hip stability exercise during trunk rolling movements.
