6 Stretches To Unlock Your Tight Hips

Wide-legged Split Stretch

This is a great stretch for your hamstrings, hips and thighs.

  • Inch your feet apart as you drop down into a traditional split.  Remember to do this slowly as everyone has a different amount of flexibility and if your hips are tighter, you might have a bit more difficulty doing this stretch.  Sinking too quickly in this pose can cause injury.
  • As you sink into the pose, bring your arms down to the floor in front of you.  If you have the flexibility, you can drop to your forearms to deepen the stretch and eventually bring your chest to the floor.
  • Hold this pose for five deep breaths, then walk your feet back together.
