Sitting Isolated Hip Flexor Lifts


How to Perform this E-cise™

  1. Sit in the middle of a chair with your feet pointed straight ahead, 4-6 inches apart.
  2. Let your arms hang down at your sides.
  3. Roll your hips forward to place an arch in your low back.
  4. Lift one foot 4 to 6 inches off the floor and then lower; repeat as directed on your menu.
    • Use your front hip muscles to generate the movement.
    • Maintain the arch in your back, keeping your hips rolled forward throughout the e-cise.
    • It may be beneficial to sit facing a mirror to observe if your upper body is offsetting away from the working leg/hip--do not let this happen.
  5. Switch sides and repeat as directed on your menu.
