Hey, I hope you are having a great day.
It was a crazy day for me yesterday, even though it was a holiday in the US. Mike Westerdal and I are working on our next project. You might have heard a little bit about it when I disclosed this new program last January while I was in Tampa Bay filming it. Mike and I are really close to getting it done and ready for you. We are hoping that it will be available and ready to go next week.
I am not going to reveal what exactly it is, but if you have gotten the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program that Mike and I released last fall, then you will love this program that will come out next week. Make sure to watch out for the release announcement of the product.
Now for today, I have a quick video for you that will help stretch out your hip flexors. It is my go-to and best hip flexor stretch. Check it out below.
Unlocking Hip Flexor Mobility and Flexibility: Strengthen and Stretch for Optimal Hip Health
The hip flexor is a muscle that flexes the hips. It originates at the pelvis and inserts into the femur. The hip flexor helps to flex the hip, rotate the leg, and move the thigh forward. It is found in both the upper and lower bodies. The primary function of this muscle group is to allow for an extension of the hip, stabilize the knee, and support weight during movement. The hip flexor can become tight from sitting in one position for long periods, lack of activity, or poor posture. A hip flexor stretch will help with mobility and flexibility and relieve tension in this important muscle group.
The hip flexor stretch is one of the best ways to strengthen and stretch your hip flexors. It’s especially beneficial for runners, as it helps to improve flexibility in the hip joint. A hip flexor is a group of muscles that run along the front of the thigh. The primary function of these muscles is to move the thigh toward the body when you walk or run. When these muscles are tight, they can limit your range of motion and cause pain in your hips. You can improve your flexibility and reduce knee pain by stretching out tight hip flexors.
In this video, I am going to go through the best hip flexor stretch.

Move into the 90-90 position, with one leg out front and one leg out behind. Make sure that your foot, knee, and hip are in perfect alignment in the front and in the back. Tighten up your abdominal area, bring your left arm over your head, and then bring your hip forward. This exercise is going to target the hip flexors, especially deep into that hip area.
Give that exercise a go and your hip flexors are going to feel a lot better.
