Hip Flexor Stretch

Although I have previously pointed to studies which question the general value of stretching  particularly in terms of impact on sports performance, injury and muscle soreness.  Stretching before exercise has been especially challenged.

However, stretching to restore deficits caused by poor posture or the environment - like too much sitting - is still something that I do and recommend.  Here is Tom Furman on a simple stretch series for the hipflexors.  Tom says "Stretching, and eliminating hip flexor tightness can improve posture and reduce back ache."
