Does anyone else have really tight hips? I know it can’t just be me. My Pinterest feed has been full of stretches for tight hips lately, which is perfect since I need some help in that area.
I’ve been trying to do yoga once a week, which I realize isn’t enough to make too much of a difference, but it’s a start. I’m also making sure I take time to stretch after runs and workouts, something I’d been skipping quite a bit.
For this week’s post, I thought I’d share some hip stretches I found on Pinterest that had also been recommended to me by my friend and trainer at the gym.
While I’m not as flexible as the model for these stretches, I can definitely do them at a lesser degree and get a great stretch. As you can see, they’re poses you might go through in a yoga class. I find these to be great after I get home from a run when my muscles are still plenty warm.
I also really enjoy the above three stretches, especially the second one. We do it in the Restorative Yoga class I like, as well as after bootcamp at the gym.
What are your favorite stretches, especially for areas that tend to be tight like hips and hamstrings? I’d love to hear about them!
