Standing Outer Hip Stretch
This is a great stretch for reducing tightness in the Iliotibial band - a long thick strip of fascia running down the outside of the thigh.
- Stand with the leg to be stretched behind the other.
- Lean over to the non-stretching side.
- Push the hip you wish to stretch out to the other side.
- Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.
- Perform leaning forwards, using the wall or a table for support.
- Take the leg being stretched as far across your body as possible.
