How to Do 

How to Do Standing Hip Flexor Stretch

Keep a neutral spine throughout the movement and avoid jerking motions. Your pelvis mostly performs the motion along with hips, your back leg should not move much once you have got into position.

Each exercise 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 exercise.
