Yoga open shoulder open hip hot for so long, shoulder and hip joint in the end how to open?

Stamp the blue words on it and pay attention to us! When practicing yoga, people are not unfamiliar with yoga, but have you ever thought about how to open the shoulder and hip joint after opening the shoulder and hip joint for so long? Can the shoulder rotate 360 degrees to achieve Yoga wheel? Can you easily lie on the frog and do a word horse split and cross? NO! First of all, shoulder and hip opening is never defined by being able to do a certain individual, it is all-round.

For example, the flexibility of the shoulder and hip joint is judged by the flexion and extension, abduction and adduction, internal rotation and external rotation of the shoulder and hip joint.

Being able to do a certain yoga movement can only represent his good flexibility in a certain direction, not all.

Secondly, the flexibility of shoulder and hip joint in real life is relatively speaking, not absolute.

For some special occupational groups, the flexibility of shoulder and hip joint is called flexibility only when it exceeds the limit of their anatomical position.

For example, straight horse, cross fork, extreme back bend, etc.

The range of motion of shoulder and hip joint flexion / extension abduction / adduction internal rotation / external rotation shoulder joint 180 degrees / 50 degrees 180 degrees / 45 degrees 70 degrees / 90 degrees hip joint 120 degrees / 30 degrees 40 degrees / 25 degrees 25 degrees / 45 degrees.

For the general public, the flexibility of shoulder and hip joint is the flexibility to maintain the basic health of human body.

Insufficient or excessive exceeding this angle (insufficient joints will be too stiff and too joints will be unstable) will have a certain impact on the health of the body.

Therefore, for ordinary Yoga people who pursue health, it can be called flexible when the shoulder and hip joint is opened to the anatomical angle of the normal human body.

There is no need to lie on the frog, a horse, a cross fork and rotate the shoulder 360 degrees.

Practice yoga.

If your shoulder and hip joints have exceeded the normal movement angle, you don’t need to open your shoulders and hips too much.

You can do some exercises to strengthen stability.

If your shoulder and hip joint is lower than the normal movement angle of the shoulder and hip joint, then you need to do some shoulder and hip opening exercises.
