Sitting is terrible for you. Now, if you did not know that or have to sit for work, there is one benefit to having a chair present – seated hip stretches! Here is a quick and easy stretch you can do while seated. With proper alignment, you can help to restore flexibility in the external rotators of your hips. An added bonus is that the hip bone is attached to the back bone…well not quite, but you do have fascial connections from the hips to lower spine and higher, it is very important to keep tissues globally pliable. No point in having open hamstrings if you can’t even cross your legs! With this stretch, you can take steps to improving your joint health throughout your body, as the upper and lower body connects to the pelvis.
Try this stretch and let me know if it works for you!
