Even if you DON’T DO Yoga, these 3 poses or postures will absolutely help you loosen up and unlock your inner thigh muscles and help your hips and legs perform and feel better!
Strength Coach, Yoga instructor & Marine Corp Vet Zach Zenios knows how to help you get more out of your body. Range of motion and increased mobility from head to toe is critical in human performance. That is why top athletes spend so much time on warming up properly and getting their body to move through a FULL range of motion.
We are all built differently, no doubt about that. And due to past injuries or traumas to the body, some of these postures or poses may be harder than others. However, you can’t argue the fact that most of us spend too much time in postures that promote poor posture and cause tightness in our shoulders, chest, neck, lower back and especially our hips and groin areas.
Unraveling these areas can take time but if you learn and practice some simple movements like the 3 yoga poses Zach shows you in this video, over time you can undue some of the damage and/or tightness that you’re currently dealing with.
NOTE – the key to all 3 of these inner thigh poses is the breath. If you don’t breath deeply into your belly using your nostrils to help slow your breathing down, your results will not be as noticeable.
The breath is KEY to all poses and postures in yoga and ultimately KEY to all sports performance. Focusing on your breath will always lead to a calming / relaxing effect allowing your body to get into better positions.
Best 3 Yoga Poses for Your Inner Thighs
-Just getting into this posture can be intense for people. Hold this position for time OR slowly move forward and back with a nice even tempo. Perform this for 30-60 seconds and don’t over do or try to hard, breathe and relax into the posture.
-Perform this with or without a block. The block helps to get your pelvis off the floor and make it more comfortable and effective. Position the block under your sacrum not your lower back and raise knees up. Let gravity do the work or assist with hands.
-Hold this posture for 10-30 seconds, breathe and relax. Let gravity again do the work for you as you get deeper into the stretch.
