This stretch will help you loosen out your hips and balance your squat correctly, enabling you to squat deeper.

 

Equipment: Exercise ball, exercise mat

 

  1. Position yourself in a kneeling lunge with your left leg in front, with your knee at a 90 degree angle
  2. Place your exercise ball on your left hand side and lightly rest your left hand on top of it
  3. Tilt your pelvis by tucking your tailbone under (just tightening your bottom here might be enough)
  4. Lean your weight slightly forward until you feel a gentle stretch through the back of your right thigh
  5. Lift your right arm straight up until it’s in line with your ear and gently lean towards the ball, keeping your hips square. You should feel a stretch along the whole right side of your body
  6. Hold the stretch and then switch legs and repeat
