Hip Flexor Stretching Exercises
Unlock Your Hip Flexors
There’s a ‘hidden’ body-part you’ve likely never heard of… and it’s probably making you look like you’re at least 5-7% higher body fat than you actually are. It tends to create a lower belly bulge, love handles that don’t belong, and can actually lead to low back pain when left untreated.
In Physical Therapy, this is one of the most common body-parts that are screened for, an area that is seeked out and fixed with hands-on attention, and one for which I’ve received specialized training. When released, our clients feel enormously better, almost as if blood flow returned to a vital area; and they have confidence to address new body goals.
It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it’s also one of the biggest dangers to your health is its siting.
Even if you’re the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
If you have tight hip flexors from sitting too much you may be kicking your body into fat storing mode and it has nothing to do with inactivity.
