Here are 12 yoga poses to help open your hips. Heidi Kristoffer recommends that you pick any five of these openers each day, switching them up each time. Hold each pose for about 30 seconds each, take deep breaths, and you will start to feel more open. For more details on each pose check out the original post at Shape.com.
Need to start incorporating these into my practice!
I needed to see this right now. My poor hip flexors.
[X] - One Leg Romanian Deadlift
Main targeted muscle group: Gluteus Maximus and Hamstrings
Secondary muscle group: Lower Back
How is it performed? Start out by holding a dumbbell in one hand and stand on the opposite leg, knee slightly bend. Bend over with your hips while keeping your back straight, your shoulder blades retracted and the dumbbell near your thigh and shin as you slide it down. How low you can go depends on hamstring flexibility.
The single leg romanian deadlift puts lets stress on the lower back compared to the romanian deadlift due to the reduction in weight.
