Hip Flexion with knee extension

Core stability hip flexion exercise

 

teaching points:

  • Lie flat on your back with your knees and hips bent up so that there is a small space between the hollow of your back and the floor.
  • Inhale to prepare and while exhaling engage your core.
  • Inhale again and as you exhale lift one foot off the floor, bringing the knee towards the chest.
  • When you reach 90 degrees of hip flexion, straighten the knee.
  • Return back to the start position by bending the knee and then extending the hip until the foot is on the floor again.
  • Repeat 5-10 times, alternating legs.
