My Daily Routine For Flexible Hips

Saturday, October 28, 2023

Achieve Flexible, Resilient Hips with this Daily Routine

Tyler from WiShape shares his personal daily hip flexibility routine that allows him to "have flexible hips that feel amazing." He emphasizes that consistency with a simple routine is key, rather than long, sporadic stretching sessions.

Start with the Hip Hamstring Stretch

The first move Tyler recommends is the "hip ham stretch" which alternates between stretching the hip flexors and hamstrings. He advises getting in a "90/90 position" and maintaining neutral pelvic alignment during the stretch. Hold each side for 3-5 seconds, alternating 10 times.

Move to the Straddle Stretch

After hip hams, Tyler suggests moving to a straddle stretch position. He says to "bring your legs to the outside and ideally bring your toes towards your nose" to open the hips. Do 3 rounds of stretching "a little deeper each time."

Go Deeper into the Stretch with Each Round

For the straddle stretch, Tyler recommends doing 3 rounds total. Each round focuses on stretching deeper by "bringing your belly button towards the ground." He advises putting hands on the floor to help pull your body deeper into the stretch with each exhale.

Target Each Side Further with Side Bends

Once you can bring your head to your leg in a straddle stretch, Tyler suggests moving on to side bends. This involves crossing one hand over to the opposite leg, and dropping the shoulder and chest down. Grab the toe with the other hand and pull deeper on each inhale.

Consistency Over Time is Key for Gains

Tyler explains this is an advanced flexibility routine, so don't expect overnight results. However, by following it consistently over time, you will gain hip mobility. He says "come back to the stretch often every single day" to reap the benefits for your hips.

Proper Form and Patience Are Essential

In summary, Tyler provides an effective daily hip flexibility program, but emphasizes not rushing and maintaining proper form. Being consistent and gradually going deeper into stretches will open up your hips and lead to real gains over time.
