Hip Flexor Stretch

If your hips aren't hoppin' the way they used to, try this hip flexor stretch to loosen them up.

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent, with both feet flat on the floor about shoulder-width apart.

  • Bring your right knee toward your chest, pulling the upper leg back with your hands in the crook of your leg behind the knee.
  • The small of your back should be pressed against the floor. Without arching your back, slowly extend your left leg along the floor.

  • Hold for 5-10 seconds. Slowly return both legs to starting position.
  • Repeat with the other leg.
