Hip Rotation Stretch

 
 

Setup

 
 

Muscles

Process

Step 1: Lie on the floor with the legs extended and arms making a "T" formation. Grab the midpoint of the Link™ with the active leg side hand. Take the other hand and place it midway between the already positioned hand and the active foot.

Step 2: Bend the active leg and bring the knee to the chest. Bring the Link™ under the head with the active side hand.

Step 3: Pull the down side hand down to the floor. 


Tips

Keep the upper back firm against the ground and avoid hyperextension in the back. The active leg must be relaxed to enable full hip elongation. Hold the stretch position for 30 seconds so the Link™ can take up slack as the muscle relaxes and allows for further mobility. Maintain dorsiflexion throughout the entire movement.
