    Ladies and gents,
    Any tips/routines etc to help really build core strength for powerlifting movements?
    Years of jumping straight into workouts without proper warm up, stretching or any focus on core strength has left me worrying about maintaining proper technique in my lifts going forward.
    I have had issues with hip flexor pain during both deads and squats in the past with no real resolution other than rest, so hoping there might be a way for me to avoids these issues all together going forward.

    My gym has a special mobility class that I'm thinking of checking out. It's not weightlifting specific but worth I shot I reckon.

    All thoughts and opinions welcome.

    What Rimmy and V-man said and add overhead squats into your warm ups and you will quickly realise how weak inflexible and short your ROM really is

    I deal with scoliosis which causes my body to tighten up more-so on one side. Look into inversion tables.

    Even if you don't suffer from something like scoliosis, they're awesome for stretching out your hip flexors, and spine.

    I literally feel my left hip flexor stretch and pull and straighten me out, it's great stuff!

    I used to have a lot of back pain with workouts until I started using one of those magic tables everyday lol.
