After riding my bike to work 2x last week my hip is bit tight.  I had surgery about 1.5 years ago now and have be consistent to keep moving and stay strong.  New or revisited movements can irritate it.  What do I do to counteract this?

Well my warm up is slightly longer than my workout and I use training ladders to get stronger in a short amount of time. I make sure I’m not doing too much volume and concentrate very hard on each lift trying to flex and connect with every muscle.  Example of a ladder– 5 reps, rest, 4 reps, rest, 3 reps, rest, 2 reps, rest, 1 rep  done.  This method works for any level, any exercise.  Let’s put this in the context of an exercise a new mom would use.  The reverse band fly for upper back

Go to your weakest point and use this method to get stronger and connect with your muscles before going for volume of reps.

This works very well. I do something very similar (pretty much sounds the same) called in-workout pyramid.
