What is the best stretch routine to get rid of pain? You found it! The stretches in this video can help eliminate pain almost anywhere from your rib cage to your feet. HIIP stands for hamstring, inner thigh, IT band, and piriformis. These stretches help to lengthen the big hip flexing muscles and connective tissue that connect the lower leg to the pelvis. Lengthening of these areas helps to eliminate knee, hip, lower back, and all sorts of pain that can stem from sitting too much to over-training.
What is the best stretch you probably aren’t doing? Your glutes! Believe it or not, your butt muscles are more a part of your core than your legs and have a huge impact on how your body moves and supports itself. Stretching these muscles is extremely vital to the health of both your low back and your legs. In this video, coach Earl demonstrates three stretches that take care of the tension in your glutes and hips, while providing a passive vicarious stretch for your low back.
