Hip stretch


Hip stretch

Stand with one foot in front of you and your weight equally distributed between them. Bend both knees and lift your back heel off the ground. Bring your pelvis forward so your back is flat. (You can lean against a wall or column for balance.)

Hold for 10-20 seconds, then repeat on other side. You should feel the stretch in the front of the hip and into your abdomen.
