Kneeling hip flexor stretch


Do you spend most of your day sitting? If you do, this is a great stretch for you! Tightness through the front of the hips can decrease your ability to extend the hip. This can result in lower back, hip, pelvic or hamstring injuries.

Key points:

  1. Start in a kneeling lunge position with both knees at 90 degrees.
  2. ‘Tuck your tail’ pushing the bottom forward.
  3. You should feel this through the lower abdomen, thigh or front of the hip on the back leg.
  4. Make sure you’re not leaning back, stay tall.
  5. For greatest benefit, perform this multiple times a day, holding for 30-45 seconds each side.
