Right, we’ve got something different for you today.

We do, we’ve got a nice little stretch routine for the hips and to keep you nice and mobile.

So, we’re going to be targeting through the glute, the hip and the hamstrings. A former client of mine did this routine well a slight adjustment of this routine, she moved away and asked for a video.

So, we’re going to do it for you.

Correct.

Cause that’s the type of guys we are.

Yeah.

So ultimately what, Stephen’s, going to do is he’s going to do is he’s going to take me through it first and just show us the different stretches, talk about the teaching points and then we’ll put it all together and you can just push play and follow the routine.

Yeah, we’re looking to do a nice flowing routine so you can think great I’m going to do that little routine that the kilted coaches showed me. So, hopefully it flows nice and smoothly.

Yeah you could do this routine every morning if you liked or every evening or twice a day. We’re holding each stretch for 30 seconds so again just push play.

As I said if you’ve got a little bit more time on your hands feel free to hold the stretches for a little bit longer whenever I used to do yoga I know you can hold the stretch for 2 to 3 minutes if you wanted to, we personally don’t have time for that so we’re going to hold them for 30 seconds.

Let’s get stuck in.

Ok, so, what we’re going to do is we’re going to start with the hip flexors come up on to the knees one leg forward and we’re going to keep the shoulders back and push the hips forward and you should just feel this stretch coming down into this hip flexor here. Kinda dodgy me doing that.

Ok and like we said we normally hold them for thirty seconds and we’ll show you the full routine afterwards with the timings included.

So from there what we do is we then sit back into the back heel, sit on the foot and then just stretch down for these toes here and you get a nice big stretch up the hamstrings, the back of the thigh there.

From there we bring this leg we bend it under and we push the other leg back and sink the body as low to the floor as you possibly can. This gets the glutes on this side. OK, from there we slowly come back up again, bring the leg forward, back into the hip flexor stretch, and then we bring the arms up and we just increase that stretch that little bit further as the hip flexors are one of the tightest muscles in modern life because we spend all day sitting. From there we can actually take it a stage further again so whatever side you’re stretching you would then pull away from and bend your body to the side. Once you’ve held that for the thirty seconds you can then reset and we do the whole thing on the other side.

See you on the other side.

See you on the other side, where the grass is greener.
