Unlock Your Hip Flexors

by Daisy Pricilla (2019-02-02)

Start the movement by raising your back up off Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review the floor and slowly rotate your right shoulder toward your left knee -- try to touch your knee with your elbow if possible. Slowly recline back toward the floor and then repeat the movement with your left shoulder and right knee. The keys to making this ab exercise achieve its full intended effect is to avoid jerking or bouncing, maintain a continuous tension in the abs during the entire time, and not resting on the floor between movements. You should also focus on keeping your knees together during the movement and keep your hips from scooting back and forth -- keep them under your knees at all times. Finally, your back should be somewhat rounded during the exercise. It may be helpful to have someone holding your legs down, so a workout partner is ideal in for this exercise. However, with a concentration on slow and steady, a workout partner is not necessary.
