Targets: hip flexor, back of leg
1. Step your left foot forward, slightly wider than your hips.
2. Plant your hands or forearms inside your left leg on the floor.
Hold and then repeat on the other side.
Running can shorten your hip flexors , which then pull on other areas of the body, creating imbalance. Beside feeling it in your hip flexor and back of leg, you will feel it in your front legs, inner thigh, and groin areas that are vital for knee stability.
