Ankita, for this week, chose to improve her hip flexibility with a routine of Hanumanasana. She shared a set of pictures of herself performing the asana and wrote, "If sliding in to the weekend like were a picture. Hanumanasana requires a lot of flexibility around the hips. Make sure to open the hip muscles before you give this a try. A little every day goes a long way. Always remember, consistency over intensity."

Performing Hanumasana on a regular basis comes with a range of health benefits. It helps in improving the flexibility of hamstrings, calves, groins, pelvis, and hips. It also helps in toning the leg muscles and improving the menstrual cramps. Also known as the splits pose, Hanumanasana helps in lengthening the hamstrings, gluteus, hip flexors and psoas muscles. It helps in balancing the nervous system as well.
