Pulse Power: The Pigeon Pulse Exercise

pigeon pulseAre you looking for exercises to add to your workouts to help keep your hips, knees and legs healthy and strong?  Try this simple hip and leg exercise that you can do in a standing position.

We typically don’t spend much time in a toe-in position, but having the mobility to turn the legs inward and outward is important to strengthen your hips and thighs and help you get a stretch from your calves to the heels.

Most of the time, when we do hip and leg exercises we work in a parallel or  V-position (turned out).

Different parts of our hips and legs have to work and stretch to be in a Pigeon-Toed position (turned in).  Since the knee is between the hips and the heels, to keep the knees tracking well to avoid pain and injury, this Pulse Power Pigeon Pulse exercise can be helpful.  Also, if your calf muscles are tight, if you have stiff ankles, or know you need to be stretching your Achilles to keep your heels healthy, this easy hip and leg exercise is going to help your feet, ankles, and heels too!
