Hip Flexor Stretch for Rectus Femoris Muscle

This is a simple hip flexor stretch, perfect for runners. This stretch particularly targets the rectus femoris muscle. Iliopsoas and tensor fasciae latae muscles may also benefit from this, depending on where you are tight around the hips.

Begin with 20 seconds static stretching in the position described, then follow immediately with 20 active reps. This is such a subtle yet incredibly effective stretch for runners and triathletes.
