Did you know too much tension on the front of your hips can prevent the back of your hips from working?
In other words, if the front of your hips, aka your hip flexors, are too tight, your glute muscles can’t activate and help you walk properly.
And no amount of glute strengthening exercise will help if you don’t create length on the front of your hips first.
In today’s video, I’ll show you how to stretch your hip flexors so your glutes work better when you walk.
This exercise takes the kneeling hip flexor stretch and brings in the upper body with a reach and a twist.
Check out the exercise in today’s video if you want:
- To walk better
- Improve your balance
- Have more muscle tone in your caboose
- Feel relief from achy, tight hips
After you give it a try, I’d love to know how it went. You can tell me in the comments below.
With a twist,
