Active Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch
This stretch increases the flexibility in the front of your hip and lower back to promote the optimal alignment and posture of your pelvis.
Begin in a kneeling position on your right knee with your left leg bent at a 90 degree angle in front of you, foot flat on the ground.
Move your right foot to the left, taking it past the center of your body.
Draw your abdominals inward and tighten.
Tighten your buttocks while pushing your hips forward until a mild tension is felt in the front of your left hip.
Raise your left arm straight up in the air and over to the opposite side while maintaining the position of your pelvis.
From this slight side bend position, begin to extend your left arm behind you to increase the stretch.
Controllably move your arm in and out of this position to actively stretch the front of your hip.
Switch sides and repeat
Where you should feel it
