Most of us sit down all day. From long car rides, to traveling on a plane to sitting down at a desk. We are living a sedentary life.
That is causing a lot of problems for the hips and low back. When you sit down for the majority of the day the muscles around the hip shorten and become weak. This is a huge problem for those that want to go lift after a day of sitting or anyone who wants to move well.
That is why I recommend the Bretzel 2.0.
Where did I get it from : Originally learned this a few years back at Cressey Sports Performance.
What Does it do: This is a great drill to help open up the posterior chain. More specifically the lats, glutes, hamstrings and IT band.
Give this stretch a try and let me know how you feel .
