Hip Flexor Stretch

Stretch It: Foot and Hip Flexor Wall Stretch

Whether you run on the trail or the treadmill, your feet and hip flexors become so tight it can be uncomfortable to walk. To ease the tension, here's a stretch you can do that will not only target your tootsies and the front of your hips, but will also stretch out your tight calves.

  • Kneel on the ground and place your right toes on the wall as high as you can with your heel on the floor.
  • Place your hands on the ground on either side of your front thigh and step your left leg back, coming into a low lunge with your left knee on the floor. Keep your left foot flexed so you can stretch out this foot as well.
  • Gaze forward and press your hips forward to increase the stretch in your right foot and left hip flexor.
  • Hold for 30 seconds and then switch sides.
