Supine Hip Flexor Stretch

  • WHY: This exercise will stretch a muscle that is in front of your hip going down towards the knee.
  • HOW: While laying on an elevated surface such as a couch, table, or bed bring one knee into your chest. Allow the other leg to hang off of the edge of the table. Focus on your breath and allow the leg hanging off to relax. If not enough stretch you can put an ankle weight or a bag that has weight on your ankle to further bend your knee.
  • FEEL: You should feel a pull in the front of your hip and thigh with this exercise.
  • COMPENSATION: Make sure the leg that you are not pulling up is completely relaxed to ensure a good stretch.
