Functional Hip Flexor Exercises for Climbers, Runners, Triathletes and Cyclists.


Three functional exercises for strengthening the hip flexors through a full range of motion. Exercises: Hanging Leg lifts (bent and straight legged variations), Standing one-legged hip extension and Lying Hip Bridge. These exercises are somewhat sports specific for rock climbing, but are also great for the prevention of overuse injuries in endurance sports. Triathletes, cyclists, mountain bikers, runners and swimmers would be prudent to include these exercises in their off season training cycle. Hip Flexor Muscles: Iliopsoas (Psoas Major and Iliacus muscles) and Rectus Femoris.
