Weekly Wednesday Workout: Hip Flexor Lunge Stretch

We are always building our muscles but are we taking care of them by stretching?

Today I wanted to highlight one of the most forgotten areas when exercising, the hips! I have especially noticed that my hips are super tight after running consistently. When my hips are open I kind of feel like a new woman. And if you don’t know what I am talking about I suggest you try this stretching exercise out! Make sure you look past the 1970’s film look and listen to the instructions to get the maximum effect of this stretch. I need to get my flexibility up to par, and this stretch will help me get there!

Have you ever tried the Hip Flexor Lunge Stretch?

I know what you mean, tension in the hips just becomes normal until we actually release it!

I think I just found my new hip stretch! I hate using the foam roller for the hips and it’s hard to find a stretch that isn’t awkward in public. You even got the Husband to stop and watch. Thanks for sharing this!

I’m totally diggin’ the 1970s video, man. I think this is my Zumba teachers favorite stretch. She has it at the end of every class. I guess she’s just looking out for our hips.

I struggle with tight hip flexors so this is one of the stretches I do regularly to keep it happy.
