How to do the Runner’s Lunge Stretch:

  • Start on one knee. Step the opposite foot out in front.
  • This should be a big step, keeping the front knee directly above the ankle
  • Contract the abdominals to create a slight pelvic tilt
  • Press the back hip forward, shifting your weight into the heel of the front foot.
  • You should feel a stretch in the front of the back hip (between the top of the thigh and the abdomen).

Option 2:

  • If you are having difficulty balancing, or have too much pressure on the back knee, place both of your hands on the floor, on the inside of the front foot.
  • Try not to round your back.
  • Continue to press the back hip down and forward to maintain the stretch.
