8 Hip Stretch Marks to Counteract the Effects of Sitting All Day
You and I probably spend too much time sitting. Excessive sitting makes our hips very tight, which in turn can affect our posture and make it harder for us to perform our best tasks or free movement in general. If you have to sit at work, do a few hip stretches every day to keep this important joint healthy.
In its video, GMB Fitness guides you through eight gentle movements and stretches. You may already know some of them. These include lying on your back and moving your hips gently back and forth, stretching the piriformis muscle (which is known to be tense in most people), active butterfly stretch ,frog ,kneelinglunge, and more.
When stretching your hips, it is important to properly align your pelvis (not tilting too far forward or backward) to feel the stretch in the desired areas. One way is to imagine that your basin is a bowl of water and you don’t want to spill a drop.
