How to do Kneeling Hip Flexor

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: lower back, quadriceps


Start standing and place your hands on your hips, with enough space behind you to step backwards. Then take a big step back with your right leg, on to the toes of your right foot. Lower the right knee to the floor and turn your foot over so you are resting on the top of your right foot.

Once in this kneeling lunge position, keep your shoulders stacked on top of your hips and then squeeze your glutes to push your hips forward until you feel a stretch on the front of your right hip and also down the right thigh. Hold the stretch for the required duration, then stand back up to the start position and repeat it for the left hand side by stepping back and kneeling onto your left knee.
