WHY: This exercise will stretch a muscle that is in front of your hip going down towards the knee.
HOW: While laying on an elevated surface such as a couch, table, or bed bring one knee in to your chest. Allow the other leg to hang off of the edge of the table. Focus on your breathe and allow the leg hanging off to relax. If not enough stretch you can put an ankle weight or a bag that has weight on your ankle to further bend your knee.
FEEL: You should feel a pull in the front of your hip and thigh with this exercise.
