The hip flexors are naturally so tight, that the body has created many ways to compensate for the tightness.
Does this mean, it’s ok to have tightness in flexors of the hip? Of course not. The problem is, that everyone is trying to stretch them the wrong way, and instead, end up stretching everything else, as you’ve seen demonstrated in the two pictures above.
If you want to stretch these elusive muscles, you need to isolate them:
- There are 6 hip flexors and 4 adductors and all of them flex the hip.
- Too much to stretch all at once.
