  • Do a lunge stretch. When doing this, make sure that your knee is at a 90 degree angle to your foot. If needed slide your bottom leg further away so your hips move closer to the floor. This is helping to stretch the dorsal hip muscle.

  • Do a seated V stretch. This helps stretching for the box splits. First try to put your elbows in the floor, then your nose. Then try and get your whole belly on the floor with a flat back.
