Sitting in this position is something that a lot of us like to do whenever we’re on the floor. As a result, even if we have areas of shortness such as in the calf or hamstring, the inner hip and groin can often be quite long.
It’s a reminder for us all that flexibility is tissue and body-part specific.
That’s one reason why it is important to look at and assess each of these areas so that we can target our flexibility or mobility program. In this way, we are focusing only on increasing the length in the areas of our body that might be most in need.
