Got a tight ass? Good for you. Maybe. Sometimes our external rotators of the hip can get pretty darn tight which can cause pain in other parts of the leg like the lateral thigh. Here's a fix. Grab your therapy or tennis ball. Find yourself in a seated figure 4. Shift your weight to your hands and lift up your hips. Place the ball mid glute. Gently lower your hips down applying more weight onto the ball. You may feel more sensation when sliding the ball laterally. You will notice when you've hit the right spot because it can get super intense. Because of this, I suggest slowing sinking your bodyweight onto the ball versus rolling back and forth. Relax your face and smooth out your breath. Once you can "relax" an area that took your breath away, find a new area a few millimeters away and repeat. Cheers to your happy hips!
