Iam an older person.Would this exercise help? I have very bad pain on right side when getting in and out of the car and stairs.Let me know if you think this would help in any way. Thank You. Larry
hey larry, best bet is to see a doctor/physiotherapist before attempting any stretches, especially if your saying your older. It may well help stretching this muscle if your having a bit of trouble getting out of the car and down stairs.
Could also be your stomache muscles being a bit tight?
I suffer a back problem, so my hip flexor muscles always tighten, which does make it difficult to walk down stairs/hills. So these stretches may help you, just see a professional for advice first okay buddy :)
I keep pulling my hip flexor muscle - how can I stop this from happening? I always do a warm up before excercising and stretch off all muscles after excercising.
Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me..
Thanks for all your help and wishing you all the success.
Exactly 3 weeks and 2 days ago i fell backwards during a soccer game. I fell directly onto my right rear side just above the butt cheek. Initially i experienced no pain, however on the previous day and those to follow i was unable to run, lift my right leg firmly off the ground or walk up a flight of stairs without heavy discomfort. My doctor told me i had sustained heavy bruising to my glutus maximus and advised three weeks. Three weeks has passed and i experience the pain somewhat slightly, i can also manage a flight of stairs without pain and even lightly jog down, but cannot kick a ball without the muscle hurting. Do you think its too soon to do this exercise, and what advice can you give to me.
Hi, my other half needs to do these exercises but can you tell us which stance strengthens the left handside & which one the right? Thanks!
I prefer the samson stretch. It''s very similar but you accomplish everything at once. Google it you will see what I mean.
I like the illustration, though I think it could lead people astray putting the hand on the front knee. People need to remember to scapularly retract and extend the shoulders and maintain an erect posture to shift weight onto the rear leg and its hip flexors.
It''s so much easier seeing movement on these graphics than just the static demos you see on most sites.
Wow, you have a great collection of different stretches here.
It''s absolutely amazing how many people that work out regularly neglect a proper stretch. An I agree with Tyciol about the position. Even the people who do, don''t really bother to do it right.
Just imagine how many injuries could be prevented in this way.
I think that the basic stretch exercises and the way in which they have been illustrated are excellent.
