How to preform the kneeling hip flexor stretch:

  • Kneel on one knee creating a 90° angle with the opposite hip. Use a chair for extra support.
  • While maintaining a straight lower back, drive your hips forward your lower back and transfer your weight forward until you feel a gentle stretch on the anterior aspect of your hip of the lower leg.
  • Maintain the position and relax.
  • Hold for 30 seconds each side.

Pro tip:

Set a timer once per hour to remind you to get up out of your chair. Scheduling regular work breaks to perform 1-2 minutes of this will help release some tension.
