In this sequence, we flow through some deeper hip openers—Lizard, Half Frog and Reclining Butterfly. It sounds like a trip to the zoo.
PRIMARY MUSCLES STRETCHED
- Hip flexors and quads.
- Groin and adductors.
- External hip rotators and glutes.
- This routine is great to do in the morning if you’re already pretty supple, and if not, the best time is when you’re fully warmed up, after a workout.
If you prefer, you can substitute Pigeon for Lizard and Half-Reclining Hero for Half Frog. And if you have 2 blocks, you may find them useful to support your hands on in Low Lunge and Lizard.
