Half-Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretches
- Get down into a half-kneeling position with your front and back knees at about a 90-degree angle. Your stance should be around shoulder-width apart and your pelvis should be facing forward.
- Squeeze the glute on the back leg and also engage your lower abdominals, trying to tuck the pelvis to flatten out your lower back. You may feel a stretch at the front of your hip on the kneeling side.
- Keeping those muscles engaged, gently shift your pelvis forward to increase the stretch.
- With the arm on your kneeling side, reach overhead and across towards the opposite side of your body, allowing your body to side bend slightly to lengthen the psoas muscle.
