We spend so many hours of our day sitting. This in turn has
an extremely negative effect on our hip flexor muscles. Sitting
for long hours causes the fibrous tissues encasing our joints
to thicken resulting in limited ROM (Range of Movement).
Sitting actually puts more than double the amount of pressure
on our backs and even more so if you are slouching or leaning
forward to work on a computer. To loosen your hip muscles,
an exercise called a Frog pose can help relieve some of the pressure.
Placing your knees on the floor, spreading your legs apart and
sliding your forearms forward while keeping your feet touching
each other can stretch these often neglected muscles.
