Combat the sitting that we all do too much of with this TRX split stance hip flexor stretch.
This stretch targets the hip flexors, chest, and shoulders. These are all common areas of tightness after long periods of sitting.
Keep the chin tucked in a double chin position. Position the palms facing each other. Lean in through the front knee. Tighten the back glute. Engage or keep the core tight. Avoid an arch through the low back. Avoid leaning in so far that the arms end up behind the line of the body.
HOW TO USE:
This is perfect after a long day of sitting at a desk, following a lengthy car ride, or after you get off your next flight. Also try this between upper body push exercises or other lower body exercises.
