I seem to be on a roll with hip flexibility. It’s so important with every day activities like bending, walking and standing. It’s also important for sports performance for instance jumping, squating and lunging.
This weeks flexibility is a more advanced hip exercise. Some people may find it difficult to get into this position. If so, refer back to some older videos for easier and more suitable hip stretches. For example:
Although it seems I”m using my hand to push down on my knee, I’m initiating the movement from my glutes. The movement is controlled by how much you can engage your glutes to lower the knee. My hand is only a guide and then a very light push at the end. Please do not push your knee down with your hand, you can cause damage to your inner thigh as well as to your ankle.
Focus on breathing and posture throughout the exercise.
Enjoy & stretch carefully!
