How to perform the 90/90 Hip Stretch
Hip Mobility is an essential part of your fitness; not just in the dojo but in your daily life. The name "90/90" simply comes from the 90degree angle each leg makes when you move into position.
We think of the hip as a large joint made of bone. However, a capsule of soft tissues holds everything in place and our flexibility is determined by the movement available to us in the hip capsule. Since it's made of soft-tissue, regular mobility exercises and stretching will increase the movement in the hip capsule giving you increased flexibility and agility.
