Mark lists several exercises, stretches and massage techniques to improve hip mobility.

Chris has a series of posts looking at squat issues: how sitting ruins your hip action; incorporating the kneeling hip thrust to help with glute activation; and the effects of tight ankles on squats – which is looking like a likely avenue for investigation for me.
