It can be a real challenge to safely exercise the hips. These videos walk you through the best way to exercise your hips with the 3G Cardio 5 AVT Vibration Machine or any other whole body vibration machine. Using a WBV machine to exercise your hips is safe, practical and efficient. Stretching may be the most important thing to help your hips as these videos show.
Hip and I.T. Band Stretch
Stand on the 3G cardio AVT vibration machine and cross one leg in front of the other, feet flat on the platform. Keep your back leg straight and bend your front leg slightly at the knee. Holding onto the handlebars put most of your weight on your back leg, push your back leg’s hip outward and lean your upper body to the opposite side until you feel the stretch. Hold this position for the duration of the exercise timer. Repeat with legs in the opposite position. You should feel this exercise in your extended hip and I.T. Band.

Repeat this movement for the duration of the exercise timer, repeat with the other side. You should feel this exercise in your hips.
