This 34 minute practice targets the hip flexors, which are the muscles responsible for lifting your knees and legs. This sequence consists of a series of poses that predominantly build strength, but we’ll also balance all that strength building, or ‘flexing’ of the hip flexors, with some satisfying extension and stretching into the hips. You’ll also learn how to maneuver your body more mindfully so that you can build more strength instead of relying on momentum to move you in and out of a pose. Improved hip flexor strength will help you move your legs with more control, which can improve your technique and help you generate more power.
Use this practice when you’re looking to build or maintain strength, like when the intensity of your sport specific training is moderate or low. Likewise, this practice can complement a leg focused day or be used as a substitute for missed training days.
