Got tight hips and back?
Want to relieve tension in your mid back or hips?
Try this hip opener for improved mobility in your hips and back.
Here’s a great little combo to open your hips & get your t-spine moving.
5 Kneeling Windmill with 5 Torso Twist each side
Then repeat the same thing in a Standing Windmill. Points of performance here are:
-Keep Active Foot Arches. Lazy feet will equal lazy hips here. You wont get as much into the hip rotation as you can if you don’t connect your foundation first. .
-Make sure to push your back hip out on a diagonal like a dead lift. This will help you maintain your spinal position & get deeper into your hip rotation stretch. .
-Reach your arms equally in opposite directions. Just like science class ‘for every action there is an equal & opposite reaction’ If you want to rotate your torso more push into the floor first as an anchor point.
