How to stretch at LA Fitness.
Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch
This stretch is designed to relax your hip muscles, similar to the pigeon stretch.
Begin in a kneeling position, and bring one foot forward while making sure that your front knee is directly over your ankle and bent at about 90 degrees. Next, place both hands gently on your front thigh, and lean forward. Take gentle, relaxed breaths and lean into the stretch a bit deeper. Switch legs and perform the stretch on the opposite side.
- Be sure to keep your back knee on the ground and your shoulders down and squared in good posture.
- Gradually and incrementally increase the duration of the stretch, holding the stretch for 20 seconds or more.
- Always remember to breathe throughout the stretch, relax, and avoid the impulse to tense up.
