Hip Flexor Stretch (Twist)

 
 

Setup

 
 

Muscles

Process

Step 1: Lie with the active leg on the ground, grab the Link™ with the active side hand and bend your active leg knee. Bring the active hand up behind the head.

Step 2: Pull the hands up to full extension above the head.

Step 3: Reach with the off arm and try to get both shoulder blades to rest on the floor.


Tips

Do not let the active knee flare out to the side. Squeeze the glute to elongate the hip flexor further. Keep the upper back firm against the ground and avoid hyperextension in the back. Hold the stretch position for 30 seconds so the Link™ can take up slack as the muscle relaxes and allows for further mobility.
