Stretching is far from my favourite topic, but that doesn’t mean I don’t do it or teach it.
Usually I like people to move with their stretches, I’m not a fan of pure static work. I find the body responds better to movement.
The reasons for why the body responds better to movement seem to change every few years depending on whichever study is currently at the forefront, so I’ve stopped thinking too much about it.
It works. It always has done.
I reckon it always will do.
This here is a very simple hip opening stretch sequence I like to use, normally after a workout, it’s common stretch sequence we use at the end of our group classes. It also works well in a warm up or as a stand alone mobility session.
Try it for yourself and let me know what you think:
I’ve had requests for more mobility video’s, I will get to work on making some more.
If you have any requests, I’d love to hear them.
