Hip Flexion (Marching) - PYF Sitting

In this video Cindy is demonstrating how to perform  Seated Hip Flexion (Marching).  This exercise strengthens muscles in the front of your hip. 

  • Sit up away from the back of your chair with your feet on the floor
  • Firm your stomach, but be sure not to hold your breath
  • If needed, scoot back in the chair for increased back support, though avoid slumping in the chair
  • Raise your knee up as high as you can, then lower your foot back to the floor
  • You can alternate you legs as if you are marching or perform all repetitions on one leg followed by the other, working the muscles a bit harder

Perform 5-10 reps, 1-2x per day

The number of exercise repetitions and sets per day are just a suggestion and should be adjusted, as needed, to fit your fitness level and tolerance.
