Hip Release Exercises
Tip: For side and glutes go for the seated hip stretch, although be careful as it is quite a strong position and can be unsuitable for certain hip conditions and hard to get into for super tight hips. To pen the front of the hip go for standing swimming.
Hip & Leg Activation/Strengthen Exercises
Tip: For an added hamstring (back of thigh) release try the seated leg extension.
