Opening the Hips Using Bands
Drills to counter a day of sitting or low back pain
Join Jordan in a 10-minute video focusing on two drills using bands to open and decompress the hips. These drills are designed for anyone who spends hours sitting during the day, has experienced low back pain, or has experienced sciatica. Bands, as used in these drills, are a tool you can use to create external torque on tight or restricted joints. This video was created with the intermediate fitness practitioner in mind.
