Hip Flexion

Core stability hip flexion exercise.

 

Teaching points:

  1. 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.
  2. Inhale to prepare and while exhaling engage your core.
  3. Inhale again and as you exhale raise one leg up, keeping the knee bent, so your knee moves towards your chest.
  4. Inhale and while you exhale lower your leg down to the resting position again.
  5. Take care not to allow your pelvis to rock or your back to arch. Your midsection should be solid and not move with leg. movements.
  6. Alternate legs.
