Hip circles (booty bands)is used to increase mobility, warm the body up, and loosen up before a heavy leg day. By using mobility bands and hip circle exercises, the hips and glutes get activated before they have to move heavy loads. As such, athletes are able to avoid injury and increase their gains like never before.
A hip circle is a type of band that someone exercising wrap above their knees to provide resistance. The resistance is used to activate the hip flexors and glutes, which ensures an athlete is properly warmed up before moving big weight.
