Stretch of the Week – Figure Four Stretch

Try this when you get home after a long day, or after a run or workout.

Massage therapy works wonders on tight hips but to loosen them on your own or in between massage sessions this is a great way to begin stretching the hips.

Start by laying on your back.

Cross the right leg over left leg above the knee.

Grab the left leg and pull it toward your body till you feel a stretch.

Breathe and hold for about a minute or longer.

Repeat on the other side.
