Side lying hip flexor stretch


General Guidelines:

You may need to explore different hip positions to find tight areas.


To get into position lay down on your side. Then move your lower leg forward and allow a bend in your knee to stabilize yourself, then bring your top leg behind your back, and grasp it with your top hand.

How to Do:

1. To begin the stretch start to push your hips forward while holding onto your top leg, once you feel a stretch stop and hold that position for 20-30 seconds.

2. Repeat the stretch 2-3 times then switch sides.
