How to Do Hip Flexor Stretch While Standing
Keep a neutral spine throughout the movement and avoid jerking motions. Your pelvis mostly performs the motion along with your hips, back leg should not move much once you have got into position.
Each standing hip flexor stretch should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this standing hip flexor stretch.
