Many people have tight hip muscles, one of the most common issues is that it gets overworked, causing excessive external rotation in the hips, which causes lower back discomfort + pain.

Here’s an awesome stretch to release the Hip/Gluteus muscles (External hip rotators, Piriformis & the Gluteus Maximus) !

Things to note when executing the stretch:

• Lay on your back, making sure you’re not arching your lumbar

• Fold the leg on the side that you’re stretching (Forming an L-shape as shown in the video & pictures), with the other leg bringing in the knee to the tummy

• Bring your arms in and around the knee

• Interlock the hands & fingers, and pull the bended knee towards your body

Try it out!
