Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch Against a Wall

Flexible hamstrings aren't the only thing you need to do a split. Flexible hips and hip flexors are also a must, so try this stretch using a wall.

  • If you have sensitive knees, fold up a towel and place it about eight inches away from a wall.
  • Kneel down and place your left knee on the towel and your toes against the wall.
  • Now place your right foot on the ground in front of you, and lower your hips until you feel a stretch in the front of your left hip. Make sure your right knee is directly above your ankle.
  • Place your hands on your front knee to help keep your torso straight. Stay like this for five breaths. Then slowly release and do this stretch on the other side.
