25 Days of Christmas 5 Minute Fitness Challenge-Day 13

On the 13th day of Christmas my true love gave to me-lower back pain relief;-) Tight hips (from sitting all day at work, commuting etc) are one of the reasons why people suffer from lower back pain.

This circuit is a great way to assess the current function of your hips and lower back. From a physiological standpoint, we are all born to squat-take a look at a baby or a toddler-they can all squat below parallel. Regardless of your age, everyone should be able to squat below parallel without any discomfort or effort.

This sequence will help you open up your calves, Achilles tendons, groin and hips, while strengthening the muscles of the inner thighs and glutes at the same time.

Have a great day!
