Alright. The next thing we're going to be stretching is our hip flexors. So, what we're going to do is we're going to get down on the floor. You're going to put one leg forward, just like this. We're going to stretch this area right here.

So, what we're going to do is we're going to lean forward into this leg. nd as we do that, we're going to feel the stretch right through here into our hip flexors. Make sure that your shoulders are back, your core is tight, that you're really getting down and get a good stretch. You don't want to overdo it, but you really want to feel a good stretch right in this area here. Hold it for about 20 seconds and then you're going to switch legs.

Make sure the whole time you're keeping your core tight and you're really focusing on that stretch there. Go ahead and switch legs. Same thing other side. Lean into this leg. You're going to feel it right in that hip flexor. Shoulders back, core tight. Hold it for about 20 seconds.

Basically, your hip flexors are good for any kind of leg workout, any kind of flexibility movements that you're going to be doing. Your hip flexors will keep you from that full range of motion that you're going to need while doing it. It's really important to stretch these every single day, especially before your workouts and before you're doing leg workouts, or your running or doing any kind of cardio exercise. You need your full mobility and flexibility while running and what have you, so you want to make sure that you're completely stretched in that area.
