We’re continuing with the flexibility/mobility series today, and we’re focusing on two exercises that may be beneficial to you. The first mobility exercise is called a wall hip flexor mobilization. This exercise focuses on lengthening the rectus femoris which is extremely important for flexibility, strength and posture. The rectus femoris is a hip flexor and a knee extensor, therefore making it vital for sports performance and general health. By lengthening the rectus femoris, it improves posture and allows the glutes to function properly. This is an amazing mobility stretch to add to your routine.
I highly encourage you to give these two exercises a try.
