Standing Alternating One-Leg Knee Hug
- Back is straight, arm at sides, transfer your weight to the left leg. Place your left hand on your hip moving very slowly. This is your starting position.
- One leg remains straight, the second bends in the knee. Pull your knee into the chest.
- Hold your feet lower than your knee to keep your knee-cap in safe.
- Switch your legs.
- Repeat 8 times for each leg.
This exercise stretches the glutes, lower back muscles on the bent leg side and hip flexors on the straight leg side.
