Most people have tight hips, but just because they’re tight doesn’t mean they need to stay that way.

Tightness in the front of your hip or hips often goes hand-in-hand with anterior pelvic tilt, (where your butt sticks out more than it should) and, if there’s too much tilt, it may not be great for your posture and can contribute to back pain.

When stretching your hip flexor, keep a straight back and lean forward slightly, tucking your bum under your hips. Hold for 30 seconds (don’t bounce) and repeat for both legs.
