Eleni Asks: "Is there an easier hip flexors exercise?"

Posted by Paul Zaichik on

In this article you will learn very basic Extended Length Conditioning exercises for the hip flexors. (Tightest group in the body for most people)
Many articles start with "someone asked how to..." or "someone asked about…", so we figured it will be fun to have people who asked the questions appear in the articles.
This question came from Eleni, a manager of Artistic Dimensions Arts & Movement Center from Cyprus, while taking EasyFlexibility Certification Course. You can find her bio and page links at the bottom of this page.

She was looking at this ELC for the hip flexors and wanted to know, if there are easier variations. Her concern was that some students are not strong of flexible enough to do this exercise correctly.
(Extended Length Conditioning Exercise take a muscle through a new found range, just opened up by the stretching exercises. ELC protects from injury, retains flexibility and allows for deeper stretches in following rounds.)

Below you can see 3 very beginner variations.
Variation 1
Variation 2
Variation 3
