Supine leg swing

Runner's World South Africa - - FLEXIBLE THINKING -

1. Lie face up, arms out to the side. Swing your right leg across your body – with your knee as straight as pos­si­ble.

2. Just be­fore your foot reaches the floor, use your left hand to press the leg down while si­mul­ta­ne­ously try­ing to swing it back to its start­ing place. “Move in and out of the stretch over that last 20-30 de­grees of range so that the lat­eral hip mus­cles are ac­ti­vated while the stretch is im­posed,” says Blaze­vich. Do 3-5 reps per side.
