The active hip flexor stretch is an effective way to warm up primary hip flexors by bringing the leg into hip extension.

  • Stand with you feet in a staggered stance with hands on hips as shown. 
  • Tighten your abdominals and glutes.
  • Slowly move forward by bending the left knee while keeping the upper body straight until a stretch is felt in the right hip.
  • Hold for 1-2 seconds.
  • Return to starting position. 
  • Perform 5 repetitions and switch legs.
