STATIC HIP FLEXOR STRETCH STANDING

The static hip flexor stretch standing targets the rectus femoris. Keeping this muscle flexible helps maintain hip mobility.

  • 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 20-30 seconds.
  • Return to starting position and repeat with opposite leg.
