Half Kneeling Dynamic Hip Flexor And Hamstrings Stretch

Half Kneeling Dynamic Hip Flexor And Hamstrings Stretch

  • HOW: Get set-up in a half-kneeling position with something under your knee for comfort. Tuck your tailbone, keep your low back flat and chest up, and shift your weight forward to get a stretch on the hip flexor. Then straighten your other knee, hinge at your hip with your chest up, and shift your weight backward to get a hamstrings stretch. Repeat.
 
  • FEEL: The side with the knee down is going to be the side you feel the hip flexor stretch on in front of your hip and maybe even down into the front of your thigh. The opposite leg you will feel the hamstrings stretch behind your thigh.
 
  • COMPENSATION: Do not arch or bend excessively at your back, move from your hips to drive the motion.
