The most important daily stretch you can do, is a kneeling hip flexor stretch. We spend hours everyday sitting at work, driving, or watching TV or similar inactive activities. After hours and days of doing this week after week and month after month and even years our hip flexors become short, tight, and weak. This shows up as back pain, knee pain, hip pain, and with some even shoulder pain. Doing this stretch each day for a minute each side will drastically reduce your chances of getting these type of pain issues. If you already have some of these type of pain start stretching your hip flexors.
Bonus tip: If you have tight hamstrings you should seriously start stretching your hip flexors. You will see a change in your hamstring flexibility in 4 - 6 weeks.
The above picture shows the stretch in its maximum range. When you start out stretching you will not have this range of motion in your stretch. But be consistent and it will slowly improve. You can get more information on the exact way to execute this stretch if you have pain. Just email or text us. Thanks
