One of my fitness goals for 2020 is to increase my flexibility. I set this goal for myself last year but because I kept that goal pretty vague and broad, I wasn't able to fully commit. This year, I've narrowed it down a bit. Rather than just increasing flexibility in general, I want to be able to do a split.
Part of doing a split is having loose hips. I've always struggled with tight hips. Because a large portion of my job right now is to sit for long periods of time, my hip flexors can get super tight. With the increase in stationary jobs, I wanted to give you some great ideas on how to loosen those hip flexors for healthier hips.
Placing your back knee onto the chair, firmly place your front foot on the floor. Slowly and gently move forward and shift your hips until you can feel a stretch in the front of your hip. Hold for about 30 seconds and reverse.
