Your health is something that you need to think about with a total body approach. One of the areas we tend to forget about when working on our posture is our hip flexures. Because most of us sit all day in an office chair, that creates a tightening in our hips, as well as our back and chest. So in today’s series of stretches with Mark Roozen, we show you a stretch that works on your hip flexures and back.
Using a stick for support, begin swinging your leg back and forth. Make sure you’re standing tall and straight up. By kicking your leg back and forth, you are opening up your hips and allowing your back to straighten up.
