Time to change the range of motion in your hips by giving them some room to move. Channel your inner sumo wrestler for this one!
For this exercise you can choose to use a weight or just focus on body weight. Start standing with your feet in a wide legged stance, toes pointed out. Without shifting your weight forward, slowly sit down and back tracking your knees towards your toes. Once you feel a good stretch in your glutes, hamstrings, and inner and outer thighs, squeeze your glutes together to return to standing.
Your goal is to stretch, squeeze, and repeat. Starting out, I would do 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps depending on how this feels in your hips. Move slowly with control to ensure you are moving properly, keeping pressure out of your knees, and using your glutes to control the motion.
