Hip Flexion Stretch

Hip Flexion Stretch

  • HOW: Begin in a runner's stance position. Lower your body as if you are reaching the elbow towards the heel of the leg in front. Really sink down as far as you can. With each exhale sink a bit deeper.
 
  • FEEL:  You should feel a butt and groin stretch on the foot that you take a step forward with as well as a hip flexor and groin stretch on the back leg.
 
  • COMPENSATION:  Do not excessively round your upper back when in this position. You can use a yoga block to hold you up if you are limited.
