How To Stretch Your Hip Flexors If You Are Wearing a Skirt

A couple of days ago, I sent out a video on the best stretches to do if you end up sitting all day. Someone got back to me and asked…

“I can’t do some of those stretches because I wear a skirt all day. Is there any hip flexor stretch you suggest for people who wear a skirt at work?”

The specific stretch that she was unable to do because she wore a skirt was a 90-90 hip flexor stretch (below).

You can see that if you wore a skirt to work, this would be difficult to do.

#1 – 90-90 Hip Flexor Stretch 1st Alternative

One alternative is to have your feet hip-width apart, take a step back, tighten up your abdominal area, and tighten up your glutes. Bring your hips forward and look for a light stretch in the hip flexor and the back leg. This is a great alternative.

#2 – 90-90 Hip Flexor Stretch 2nd Alternative

Now depending on what type of skirt you wear, this is the second alternative to do.

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and stagger your feet as much as you can. Tighten up your abdominal area and your glute, and arch back. Look for a light stretch in the hip flexor and the back leg.

So, there you go!

If you are sitting a lot and you are wearing a skirt,  stretch out those hip flexors from sitting for a long period of time with those two different stretches especially if you can’t do the 90-90 hip flexor which I think is the best when it comes to targeting that hip flexor.
