Hip Extension and Quad Stretch
This week I am joined once again by Marlo Fisken, creator of flowmovement.net
The couch stretch seems to be the 'holy grail' of any quad/hip flexor work. But there are a lot of alternative methods.
In this week's video, Marlo shows a dynamic and active way to work through these positions that can actually be less stressful on the low back and, in my opinion, way more fun than the couch stretch.
