Are tight hips getting in the way of your workout progress or overall comfort? 

"One of the most important aspects of any workout routine is ensuring that you have the mobility to achieve a full range of motion with your movements," said fitness coach Beverley Cheng. That's precisely why she created this simple stretching routine, which slows things down to focus on building flexibility around the hips.
