How to Stretch Your Hip Area

No, we're not talking becoming a trend-setting hipster—we're interested in helping you walk, run, and play with flexibility and finesse.

You will need

  • Comfortable clothing
  • A floor

Step 1 Lie on floor Lie flat on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.

Step 2 Cross foot over knee Lift your right foot off of the ground and cross it in front of your left knee so that the inner thigh and inner calf of your right leg are facing you.

Step 3 Pull leg and hold Grab the right leg just above the ankle and pull it toward you, being sure to keep your back on the floor. Hold this stretch for 10 seconds.

Step 4 Repeat w/ other leg Release your right foot to the floor and repeat the stretch with your left leg.

Step 5 Repeat w/ right leg Release your left foot to the floor and repeat the stretch with your right leg again. This time go a bit further into the stretch until you feel a comfortable tension. Hold for 10-30 seconds.

Step 6 Repeat w/ left leg Release your right foot to the floor and repeat the stretch with your left leg again. This time go a bit further into the stretch until you feel a comfortable tension. Hold for 10-30 seconds.
