Yoga pigeon pose stretches hip muscles after workout

If you perform regular squats and lunges in your workouts, be sure to include a hip stretch at the end of your routines. This popular yoga position, the pigeon pose, will help loosen your hips and keep your buttock muscles flexible. If you're very tight in your hips, use a yoga block to support your weight; it will make holding the stretch more comfortable.
