Are you chronically tight in your hips and need some leg stretches to ease the tension?
Would you like a simple solution to your lack of flexibility?
Then I’m going to share how to stretch tight hips with a stretch strap…
And, it’s easier than you think!
Leg Stretches with a Stretch Strap
- Loop one side of the strap around your foot and lie on the opposite side. (See Figure 1)
- Bend the bottom knee up to hip level.
- Bend the top leg so that the heel comes toward the glute (buttock).
- Bring the strap behind you and over the shoulder closest to the ground.
- Gently pull the strap over your shoulder while allowing your top hip to flex backward.
- Hold this position for 20-30 seconds, then slowly release and repeat the movement. (See Figure 2)
- Switch sides and equally train the opposite leg.
Relax and breathe deeply throughout the stretch.
Challenge yourself every time to sink deeper into the stretch than previous attempts.
Stretch till you have slight discomfort, but never pain.
