Today we're continuing our Proper Stretching Technique Series with the Runners Lunge. We perform this stretch at the beginning of every barre class in our warm up and sometimes at the end of class. It's an effective way to stretch the hip flexors and open up the hips. As with every exercise there is a wrong way and a right way to execute Runners Lunge.
MODIFICATION: If you have tight hips and/or cannot reach the floor with your hands, place your hands on your knee instead and keep your spine straight.
As always, if you have any questions about Runners Lunge or any other stretch please ask an instructor!
