What are your thoughts when you're on the returning stretch of your long run and your hips start feeling achey and sore?
"I did my warm up stretches and everything before my run; why is this still happening?
Or what about this scenario…
What's your first instinct when you feel those hip flexors tighten up post run?
"I should probably stretch more and use my mobility tools…"
Hmmm, not so fast.
But…I don't want to rain on your parade.
You're on the right track!
When muscles or joints feel tight, we want to restore mobility and range of motion.
But it doesn't end there.
This is a two part process.
But dr.whitt.fit, how am I supposed to fix my tight hip flexors if I'm don't stretch? Do I l use my mobility tools for hours?
