Hey guys we're going to talk about a hip
flexion stretch or hip flexor stretch
and pelvic rotations. Far too often we
see people whose pelvis is anteriorly
rotated, their butt pokes out and they
got a really tight lumbar spine and hip
flexors so this is one of the best
stretches but it's often done wrong so
pay attention. What you need to do is get
yourself up into this lunge stretch
which we've all seen before where your
torso is straight, your knee at 90
degrees and your front knees at 90
degrees. So what you need to do is put a
little bit of gentle pressure down
towards your front heel okay and keep
this pelvis tucked under, keep your butt
not poking back like that but tuck your
butt under and keep your tummy tight. If
you extend your lumbar spine its
cheating and you won't get the same
stretch; so we want a little bit of
pressure forwards toward our heel tuck
your butt under and really squeeze that
glute to tighten it up and hold that
stretch for 20 to 30 seconds and then
relax and repeat again. A little bit of
pressure forwards and tuck your butt
under keep your tummy tight, if you lose
your tummy or you you push forward too
far you're cheating and you won't get the
same effect. So if you're feeling tight
through your hip flexors or through your
lumbar spine do this exercise towards
your heel tuck your butt under, keep your
tummy tight you'll feel a million bucks.
Give it a go let us know in the comments
how you find it or if you get really
tight hip flexors and lower back we'll
be there to answer your questions. We'll
talk again soon!
