Tight hips can be a real pain! The hip muscles can get tight for many reasons, and it’s often painful to stretch and/or strengthen them. Isometric exercises can be a great way to help relax tight hip muscles and help strengthen them at the same time.

Seated isometric hip flexion, hip adduction, and hip abduction are great ways to loosen up the hip muscles.
