We think it’s high time that we all take a moment to thank our desk jobs that have made our bodies lazy and our muscles rigid. NOT!
Little exercise and more work is resulting in inflexibility in a lot of us. We may be going to the gym and trying our best to workout but what is the use if our hip muscles are too tight to begin with? Especially those who are working desk jobs - which covers basically everyone today.
We stretch our arms, legs, back and even neck but more often than not we tend to ignore the hip area. Tight hips can also be an issue with regular runners and sports persons. Doing proper stretches can actually open up those hip muscles, prevent injury and back pain.
It is essential that we stretch these hip muscles before we begin any workout or sport. The hip area needs to be as mobile as it should be flexible. An important thing to remember is to take it slow and steady.
Follow the exercise in the images/graphics below but be sure to consult a trainer in case you experience pain or are already suffering from a weak/sensitive back.
