Do you have hip pain right now? It can be pretty annoying, but you don’t have to live with it. Feel better in under 5 minutes with this quick stretch routine:
Internal rotation hip lifts: With both legs at a 90-degree angle, lift the ankle of your back foot off the ground without lifting the knee off the floor. Lower back down and repeat a few times, then switch sides.
Low squat: Engage the glutes so the knees don’t drop inward. Let the knees track over the toes. Stretch the arms out in front of you (don’t let the knees collapse inward!) and hold for 8-10 breaths without touching the hands down.
This should help your hips feel better.
As good as this will feel, you’ll eventually want to make sure you have a long-term movement practice. But this should help alleviate some of those aches and pains you’re feeling.
Homework: Take some time at the end of your workday today to do these quick stretches — they’ll feel amazing, I promise!
