Hip Flexors

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, April 26, 2006 with 3 comments

I do hip flexor exercises at the gym by bringing knees to chest on the apparatus shown above. Usually three sets of twenty to thirty repetitions, with visits to a couple of other stations in between each set. (That's not me in the picture). Bent legs. Some people do it with straight legs but not me. Or alternating straight, bent, straight, bent etc. But not me, because of my lower back. I find it a very easy exercise; being a runner my hip flexors are strong to begin with. Does work the lower abdomen a bit as well though and I feel it there afterwards.


  1. Glad to know that's not you in the picture - I wondered if there was something you weren't telling us about that "other" life! I can see why you enjoy the gym though!

  2. It's not a long race Geoff. It's just a social occassion... a longer training run than normal in a country town that includes a walk up a hill.
