Using the Hip Hook When Overweight


People have been asking if the Hip Hook can be used if you're overweight. It most certainly can – here are some tips!

When you lie on your side, what naturally happens is that all of your adipose shifts towards the ground. This really exposes your opposite pelvic bone, giving you a nice way to feel your pelvic bone. To set up the hip hook, we're trying to find the spot right in the inside surface of the pelvis bone. This is where we want to be!

So with the adipose tissue moved out of the way, you can place the hip hook right on that spot. Then when you roll over onto your stomach, make sure that the hip hook is flat on the ground. If you're still having issues with your adipose tissue getting in the way, roll to the opposite side and pull the tissue in the opposite direction so that the point can still maintain contact right inside your pelvic bone. It might take a couple of times to get the hip hook into position and then roll over onto it; it works quite well if you're patient. If you have any other questions about this technique and your particular situation in your particular body, feel free to reach out to me directly.

You can also use the Hip Hook up against a wall and achieve the same effect!
