Hip Flexibility

Struggling with your turnout? Are your hips not as flexible as you'd like them to be? Well then don't worry because you're not alone. I myself am having those issues! My hips are literally incapable of going in that outward direction. Obviously, it's nothing too drastic but it is a hassle to always be thinking/being corrected about my turnout. No matter how much I stretch it doesn't seem to make a difference, so if anyone has any suggestions for that please do let me know!

However, those stretches/exercises I've been trying may work for you.

I hope these help! :)

Let me know about your results or other stretches that you've found for improving turnout.

Thanks guys!
