“Hey! what’s going on? It’s Ian Hart with backpainrelief4life.com. So today I’m going to go over a quick stretch for you to stretch the hip flexors. A lot of times people get down on the ground and pull their hip back and get into certain positions and I think they’re stretching their hip flexors and you might possibly be stretching them, but this I’m going to show you is one of the best ways to reach the hip flexors so it takes stress off your lower back.
What you may want to do – you can do this anywhere if you’re at work, you can just stand up and get into this position. You can get into a split stance. Okay? So you’re putting a little bit of pressure here pushing your hip forward so you feel your stretch right here, but now you’re going to reach up into the air as high as you can. Take a deep breath in. So breathe. Think about breathing oxygen into your hips; so breath all in, let your rib cage reach up and really reach up into the sky and still pushing your hips forward. Make sure you don’t arch your back or you’re not putting too much pressure on your lower back, you’re just pushing your hips forward. So deep breath and reach as high as you can; another deep breath and breath out. Hold it for about 12-15 seconds and then switch sides same thing: deep breath, pushing your hips forward reach as high as you can make sure you put a little bit of pressure here so you feel stretched and breath out. So do that 2 or 3 times you’ll start to feel your hip flexors relax and release. Therefore, taking stress off your back, depending on your anatomy, but typically if you’re sitting all day, those are going to be muscles that are tighten up.
