-3D Stretching: Hip Flexors-

Ready for more 3D Stretching?

Here is a great way to stretch the hip flexors in all three planes of human movement!  

Tight hip flexors are the devil!  If you are like most people, yours probably need some attention!  Stretch those hip flexors and strengthen those glutes!  Work on improving your overall hip mobility, and you’ll notice less back pain and an overall sense of balance within the body.

You will feel these stretches, and they are a great addition to a dynamic warm-up.  Perform 5-10 reps of each, and let me know how you feel! 🙂

Maintain upright posture, pull your belly button in towards your spine (to prevent excessive posterior pelvic tilt), and shift forwards for a count of two.  Use the arms/dowel rod to “drive” you into the sagittal (overhead raise), transverse (rotation), and frontal (lateral flexion) planes.
