What's up everybody? It's Jonny with Insane Home Fat Loss.
Today, I wanted to talk about something a little different, and that's stretching. I wanted to touch more specifically on a few specific areas, in the hamstrings and hip region.
A lot of body builders and guys I see in my gym have problems in this area, and issues in this area can cause not only pain in your lower body, but in your upper body as well. A lot of guys who say they have lower back pain, can result because they were not stretched properly.
I am going to show you a few key hamstring and hip exercises today, that you can perform either at home or at the gym.
I always recommend performing these before, during, and even after your workout, depending on what you're doing.
And, odds are you are tight in these areas unless you stretch them regularly.
2:15 - The first thing I want you to do, to see if you have tight hips or not, is to do the basic squat and look into the mirror towards your side. If your butt is pulled under during the squat, it is because the hamstrings and hips are so tight, that they are pulling it down.
2:15 - There are some solutions that will help alleviate this tension. The first is a forward fold when you bend straight down. Instead of keeping your knees locked, bend them a little so that your hamstring can be more activated. After it is nice and loose, then you can move your legs to a straight position.
4:06 - Second hip flexor stretch is called a cross over hip flexor stretch. I like to find something to hang onto to help with this stretch. For this one, I will use this door frame. Cross your leg over where your ankle is on the knee and squat down. Keep your back flat, and the further you squat, the deeper the stretch.
5:56 - Another stretch is a kneeling hip flexor stretch. I like this one because it is very dynamic. Take a knee, keep your chest up. You can do some with your toe down on the ground or with your foot up. Drive your hip further, and you'll feel the tension release in your hip. You can also bring your front foot out straight and lean into it for another stretch.
7:38 - Next one, you want to cross your leg over and bend forward. This will really stretch out the hip flexor and glute.
Your hip flexors, hamstrings, and glutes, group together to form the biggest group of muscles in your entire body. So it is important to keep these stretched out to improve your performance and flexibility.
