Hip flexor stretch

Your hip flexors — which allow you to lift your knees and bend at the waist — are located on your upper thighs, just below your hipbones. To stretch your hip flexors:

  • Kneel on your right knee, cushioning your kneecap with a folded towel.
  • Place your left foot in front of you, bending your knee and placing your left hand on your left leg for stability.
  • Place your right hand on your right hip to avoid bending at the waist. Keep your back straight and abdominal muscles tight.
  • Lean forward, shifting more body weight onto your front leg. You’ll feel a stretch in your right thigh.
  • Hold for about 30 seconds.
  • Switch legs and repeat.
