🔥 3 PIRIFORMIS STRETCH FOR A TIGHT BUTT👇/SCIATICA
✅ Here are 3 of my favorite exercises for a tight butt. If you squat, deadlift and hip thrust heavy and consistently, you might feel a sore/tight butt every now and then, which might cause pain, tingling & numbness due to the fact that that the sciatic nerve passes trough the piriformis. This means that if this muscle is tight, the nerve gets pinched and it causes all these troubles.
Because of how the piriformis is aligned in your hips, it becomes a medial rotator when the hip is flexed past 90°. This is why this stretch is able to help elongate the muscle when your hip is in a laterally rotated position close to your chest.
The drawings are pretty much self-explanatory, so I don’t need to explain them any further.
