I have some degenerative hip stuff going on in my right hip, but I have to work out my lower body because I have an extensive commute to work of 1.5 hours each way, then sit at a computer during the day. I work out first thing in the morning, starting with yoga (14 years now) then off to the big city and the gym before work. I need to know what's a happy medium for clearing and maintaining body fat from the buttocks and thighs while not exacerbating the hip pain by overdoing it. Any suggestions?
