Sit on the floor and bring the soles of your feet together. Pull them in towards your body, resting about a foot away from your groin.
Straighten your spine and lean forward from your hips until you feel it in your hip socket. You can pull on your feet to help increase the benefit.
Hold that position for at least 20 seconds before letting it relax.
This exercise focuses on the muscles in and around the hip joint to help increase mobility. It also serves as a fantastic inner thigh or groin stretch, an area that is otherwise often easily susceptible to injury and strains if not properly warmed up before strenuous physical activity. This move is good for various sports that requite a large hip rotation, such as soccer, football, gymnastics, martial arts, and many more.
