Instantly Open Tight Hips With These 8 Stretches
4 of 8
To stretch your hips, hamstrings, and inner thighs, do a
From Wide Squat, place your hands on the floor in front of you and inch your feet apart, making sure to keep your heels wider than your toes. Keep the soles of your feet flat on the ground at all times to protect your knees.
As your hips get lower, you can prop yourself up with your forearms, and then move down to your shoulders (as shown). If your shoulders are on the ground, turn your head to the side, and rest your cheek on the ground so you don't bruise your chin.
Stay here for five deep breaths, then walk your feet back together. If this pose is a bit more stretch than you can muster, try the
seated straddle stretch
