Most people are under the impression that in order to alleviate this tightness, they must stretch their hip flexors.
What if I told you that in many cases, your hip flexors are tight because they actually need to get stronger.
Here are 3 different exercises that strengthen the hip flexors.
These exercises also address anterior core strength and lumbo-pelvic stability.
The first exercise is the most basic, and the last exercise is the most advanced.
The last 2 exercises will also improve your pull-up performance as they develop grip strength, and shoulder and scapular stability.
The body positioning is also similar to what you must do while performing pull-ups.
