For the Piriformis Stretch, place yourself in a deep lung on the floor. Next, take your front leg and bend it as close to 90 degrees as possible. In order to really feel the stretch, brace your arms beside you and sit your chest up as high as possible. This action will drive your hips further towards the ground to feel a deeper stretch. Remember to keep your hips square throughout the entire exercise. Hold this position for the elapsed time and repeat with the opposite leg.
This stretch focuses on the piriformis and gluteal muscles. This stretch is key for athletes because it assists with hip mobilization and stability. It can also assist in correcting your hips after a misalignment.
