How do you Perform a Seated Hip Stretch /> Duration: 1 minute, 5 seconds

A very effective hip stretch, although it might be a bit hard to start is this position right here, where we simply get one leg over top of the other leg. 

What I like to focus on is getting nice high upper body posture and then I like to focus on getting my leg into this position.

What I like to focus on, is almost within a sense is taking my hip and pushing it backwards and bringing my knee forwards so that I get almost a separation between the hip, the quad and the low back. If I can get myself into a nice position where I am just sort of pulling my leg this way and taking the other part that way, I get a nice separation in the hip.

A lot of you are going to find this is a very, very hard position to get into. But, I guarantee you that if you simply persevere and you look at it as a six-week to three-month process, you will be sitting there like this over time and your hips will be significantly looser. 

That is what we want to think about. How do we get out hips looser over time because they take a lot of pressure with the amount of sitting we have been doing.
