Move Targets: Hip Flexors


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Sit on the floor, legs extended straight out in front of you. Keeping your core engaged, lean back slightly, so you’re able to place your hands on either side of your glutes. With flexed feet and a tight core, lift left leg a few inches off the ground.

Step 2: With control, pull leg back, bending at your knee, without touching the floor. Return to start, that’s one rep. then repeat on the  right side.
