There are a couple of stretches to do not only open your hips, but give the illusion to make your hip pop out! Stretching is vital to your health and mind and now there are stretches that you can do that can give your body an optical illusion of sexiness. Stretching in general shifts the stability of your body allowing you to do more and feel more lubricated in your joints. Doing this on an everyday basis can actually shift your hip flexors or hips neck and arms. The most important is the hip flexors and you can imagine why. There are a number of stretches to give you that curvy figure eight appearance and we will go through four. Majority of these stretches are yoga related because these are the exercises that concentrate most on the hip flexors.
If you choose to wear your waist trainer with these stretches you will get a faster result because of the compression from the trainer and the length of your limbs. Always use extreme caution when stretching and never go into a full movement cold. Make sure you have worked yourself up and are ready to do some of these stretches.
- While on your back lift your leg in a cross leg position and allow your bottom leg to drop. Pull the top leg to your chest as much is it can go and hold for ten seconds, exhale, let go and repeat three more times, three seconds each. This targets the inner and outer hip flexor allowing you to feel loser in your waist.
- While sitting up allow your left leg to stretch behind you, while your right leg is at a 45 degree angle. When you get a little bit more familiar with the stretch you can try for a 90 degree angle. Hold this stretch for 10 seconds three times and each and switch legs. This stretch targets the back of the hip as well as the inner and outer hip flexor.
- In yoga terms this is known as the happy baby pose. While lying on your back grab the back of your feet, and bring them towards your chest. Next spread them out until you look like a happy baby. This stretch opens up your hips and readjust your flexors. If you want the proportions of your hips to change this would be an excellent one to keep doing. You can get more intense as you go along and form this position into a split as you get better.
