Work It Girl: Hip Stretch

If you sit at a desk all day, take a break from work and stretch those tight hips that you haven't moved for hours. Tight hips contribute to lower back pain, so loosen up those hips with this stretch.

  • Move your chair so it's about three feet away from your desk.
  • Keep your right foot planted on the ground and lift your left leg up. Place your left ankle right behind your right knee, creating a right angle with your left shin and right thigh.
  • Stay seated if this is enough of a stretch. If you want to take it further, slowly fold your torso over your left leg. Reach out with the crown of your head, lengthening the spine and tucking your chin into your chest.
  • Hold for five or more breaths and then switch sides.
