How involved are the hip flexors in skiing?
I've strained my hip flexor while running track, and my school's trainer says I should sit out from running and soccer for 4-7 days. My plan is to go skiing tomorrow, so my question is how much does skiing work the hip flexors? Is this a bad idea? The trainer called it a grade 1 strain. Feedback from anyone with good knowledge of exercise science/physical fitness is greatly appreciated.

From my experience I don't think it's super critical. It is very important when skinning. For instance, some seasons I put down a bunch of days on hill, and then after a month or so go out skinning. The skinning really takes a toll on the hip flexor. This also implies that my hip flexor was weak when skinning-->it did not get much strength during regular skiing-->it was not used that much when regular skiing-->you should be all right. Just don't ski super hard right away, and feel it out a little bit. No running for 4-7 days sounds like it wasn't really strained that bad in the first place.
Go for it.
It's a pretty major part of your hip
If you are mutual friends with tom wallisch, steve stepp, ec headwear, saga outerwear, stept productions, ian cosco or any other popular person you added on FB because you're a 15 year old douche, stop adding me.
If i ignore you don't add me again.
If you really want me to add you, send me a message and 99% chance ill still ignore you.
PS i dare you all to add me in a plot to annoy me more i will then know that you all love me to a great extent sincerely eheath
its actually pretty important, but as long as you keep your legs together and dont catch an inside edge or anything there is a really low chance of injuring, i.e. carve into your tricks instead of setting a wide stance, I have a wonky hip flexor and that seems to help it.
Any time you want to lift your knee above your hip you're going to be feeling that strain. Last year there was a period where both hip flexors were pulled and skiing was not comfortable. Not to mention that I had to lift my legs with my hands like a goddamn paraplegic to get out of a car.
"What you are feeling is a base burn. The toilet bowl cleaner probably has a really high pH , and therefore must be neutralized with an acid that has a really low pH. So basically, you just need to stuff your asshole with the most acidic shit you can find, battery acid, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, whatever you can get your hands on. its gonna be a chemical showdown in your asshole today my friend."
i dont know if its my hip flexor or some other part of my hip but sometimes i find it hard to walk but when I ski I cant feel any pain at all. putting on socks really sucks tho
