I’ve found a web page which has a great hip flexor and hip stretch. I like it as it goes through 3 main types of stretches with good discussion about stretching only to the level that is good with you and that the stretches are held for a long period of time. I always believe that a stretch needs to be held for at least 2 minutes for the tissue to remain in the stretched position. This is a really good long deep stretch.
I believe that when beginning a stretch program, you almost need to do it religiously for at least 2 weeks to a month without expectation of results, as sometimes it takes that long, therefore there isn’t an disappointment for lack of progress during the beginning.
The teacher in the video has been doing this for a long time so don’t be disappointed if you can’t stretch as well as he. Just be patient and stretch as your level. Once a day is nice. Watch some t.v. while you do it. Click on “web page” on the first line of my entry or go to:
