    I do deads but since I'm tall there's Not as much hip involvement that'll help my squat, I'll look up rackpulls thanks

    Pretty much half deads LOL that's all I can think of that really involves a lot of hip movement.

    But maybe front squats or other types may help?

    that's a good question.

    deadlifts are my major hip excercise. sometimes ill throw in a little isolation like bicycle (aka air bike; also works abs) and the gym's hip abductor machine if i have time (not the most comfortable exercise, let me tell you.)

    I'm nearly 6 foot, and i have no problem doing deadlifts. i love em'. if you're really tall, try getting some 25lb plates(and bringing them to the gym) that have a huge diameter (so the plate hits the ground faster) and make sure to use them on the deadlifts. (i do it sometimes)

    Cable hip pull throughs, barbell glute bridge, glute-ham raise, rumanian dead lifts, kettle bell swings (when done correctly) are some examples.

    Here's a really good article

    Are you sure it's your hips and not a weak core?

    Hip thrusts, weighted with barbell on pelvis done them before and they work very well i do them a bit variation with one leg in the air so its single legged.

    Weighted hip thrusts - YouTube

    Now i know there mainly a glute exercise but i feel they have helped my hips aswell.

    Hip thrusts, preferably one leg at a time, are one of my favorites. Also, call me crazy, but I do stairs on one leg up about three flights and it hits my glutes pretty hard. One leg box jumps work also.
