Combination quad–hip flexors


Follow-along means you can press play and do the exercise with Kit.

This exercise lets you stretch the hip flexors to prepare you, then adds a quadriceps stretch to the fundamental hip flexor one. Many people on workshops who have loose quadriceps have been amazed when the two movements are combined: a powerful unique effect is achieved.

And some of you may be surprised to know that many flexible people have back problems—and doing this combination exercise has helped many of them.

The unique aspect of this exercise is that is targets rectus femoris, which in most people is the major limiter of hip extension. This version is idea for runners and cyclists.
