Deep Hip Rotators: Active Piriformis Stretch for Runners

I’ve had a couple of days this week with a lot of time spent in the car, and my hips really suffer for it! Like many runners, I tend to get particularly tight through Piriformis, deep rotator muscles of the hips.

I recorded the video below while having lunch in the park with Holly today, to demonstrate a dynamic variation of the Pigeon Pose. This is a stretch which will be familiar to many of those who have practiced yoga. Simple yet effective, it has proven to work wonders for my own hips and is great for targeting those often troublesome Piriformis muscles.
