This exercise is designed to stretch the hip flexors, calves, and groin muscles. As with all stretching you should only do them after an adequate warm-up to avoid injury.
- Stand upright, take a large step forward with one leg, bend down and place your palms on the ground on either side of your front foot. Keep your back leg out-stretched behind you and push your hips down towards the ground until you feel a stretch in your hip flexors (front of your hips) and/or groin. Hold this position for 15-20 seconds and switch legs.
