Hip Flexor and Quad Stretch

Stand with feet together. Take a big step directly back with your left foot and rest on the ball of your left foot. Slightly bend your right leg. Keeping back straight, slowly drop your left knee until the front of your hip to your knee forms a straight line that?s perpendicular to the ground. Your weight should be evenly distributed between your legs. Make sure to pull your belly button in towards your spine to stabilize your core. Hold for 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat with the right leg back.
