8 juicy hip stretches to help relieve all that nasty tension you’ve been building up

Calling all my friends sitting at the desk: how tight are your hips right now? If you’re anything like me, all those hours spent behind my computer leave my hips begging for some solid stretching.

That said, it’s important to keep in mind that hip pain may actually be a sign of hip weakness, not tightness. How can you tell the difference? Follow this tip from Pilates instructor Helen Phelan: “To test if you actually have tight hip flexors, lie down with your hips hanging over the edge of a bed and hug one knee to your chest. If you are able to pull the upper knee into your chest while the lower leg remains flat on the bed, it is not the tightness of the hip that causes the tension and pain, but the weakness.”
