The Stretch Segment - Week 3

Mobilize Your Hips

The last part of the stretch segment are the hips. For someone who is sitting down all day, your hips can get very tight. Here are some stretches to help improve this area.

1) Deep Lunge: Start by taking one long stride forward. Drop the back knee to the floor. Bring your hands on the inside of your knee. If you brought your right foot forward, squeeze your left glute muscle. Try to push the hip forward. To add to this stretch you can also reach back or look up to the sky.

2) Pigeon Pose: Start on all fours. Cross one leg in front of the other. Push the back leg as far back as you can until it is straight. Push into the glute muscle of the front leg.
