A massive pain in the butt and hamstring, here's how to fix sciatic nerve pain.
Tight muscles and stiff joints aren't uncommon for runners, and one way to ease them—and improve your overall performance—is to practice yoga or stretch regularly. But should you stretch before running?
Proper breathing while stretching relaxes the body, increases circulation, and helps get rid of lactic acid build-up. Done regularly it can fast-track recovery and flexibility.
The hips are the workhorse of the body, which means they are often tight and restricted. The good news is that with a little stretching and mobility work you'll have less pain and restriction and the potential for more strength, power, and athleticism.
