Summary

   Literally everything in modern civilization seems to be against the health of our hip flexors. Sitting too often is the biggest culprit, and so much of what we do in day-to-day life involves sitting. To reverse this damage here's my go to hip flexor stretch...THE DAND!

 

Exercise Steps

  1. Go into an upward dog position
  2. Stay on the balls of the feet, driving heels backward
  3. Rotate head, looking over the shoulder while dipping opposite side hip toward the ground
  4. Repeat on both sides 

Mobility Rx

Perform for 2 minutes at your own pace. Rest if needed within the time frame if fatigue begins.
