How to Undo Years of Sitting

Let's face it, most Americans aren't chopping wood or picking peas for hours on end these days.  If you're one of the many fighting to stay fit on 15-45 minute workouts after spending 8 hours or more in a sitting position almost every weekday, this particular stretch is for you. 

Holding the position for a few minutes at a time isn't remotely comfortable, but it's worth it.  Your hips will feel like they were let out of a vise, at least mine did.  Check out the video in the above link.

This was part of a post on a really informative blog called Mobility WOD (Workout Of the Day) by Kelly Starrett, DPT.  Check out some of the other uniquely limbering stretches and exercises on his site- he's got something new almost every day, and he's just plain fun to listen to.
