Side Lying Hip Flexor Stretch Movement
On the floor in a comfortable side lying position with your knees approximately at the height of your hips, use your top arm to take hold of your top ankle then you slowly bring your leg behind you until you feel the tension across the front of your thighs and hips. The purpose of your lower leg is to keep your back into a nice straight position preventing it from arching. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds and return slowly to the beginning and repeat on the opposite side.
