How Do I Fix My Tight Hip Flexors and Sore, Aching Hips? MOBILITY

Updated: Jul 7

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.

Science actually has a different opinion on the whole stretching situation. (Want to check that out? See the first blog post of this hip series HERE!)

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, 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?

Eeehhh, not quite.
