Tight hips while flying?…..Try this!

The figure 4 position is awesome for opening back up the pelvis and hips, especially mid flight. There are a few variations you can try.

  • Simply cross the leg and lightly push down
  • Take the knee and pull it across to your opposite shoulder to target the Glute Max
  • Or lean forward to hit the Piriformis

With each of these, hold for 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side. It’s amazing how much better your low back will feel just from working on these movements when you travel a lot.

For some added fun, try squeezing your glutes periodically as well to keep them awake!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
