Hi, I'm Juliet Kaska and this what do butt kick stretches stretch? The butt kick is a dynamic exercises that stretches out both your hip flexors and your quadriceps. By working the opposing muscles of the glutes and the hamstrings. Doing a butt kick stretch before a workout that includes anything to do with running or hip flexion, is an excellent option. so, for our butt kick stretches, we're going to do two options today. The first of which is going to be the beginner version. I want you to use a wall. Pushing your arms against the wall and your core drawn in to help stabilize yourself. Tuck the tail bone down, squeeze the abs in. And on the exhale, kick the right heel on the butt quickly and then, left heel and the right. Each time you kick up, drawing the tail bone down and engaging through those lower abs, trying to keep your torso straight and the abdominals drawn in, try 10. So, next were going to do a progression from butt kick stretch one, we're going to add in the component of walking. And this is going to be much more challenging to our core and also more effective on the stretch for our hip flexors. So, we're still going to tuck the tail bone down and draw those lower abs in. But as we kick, our hip flexors are naturally going to want to fire and pull us into an anterior or a frontal tilt. So they have to work harder through the core, the glutes and the hamstrings, to hold us into our posterior tilt. In order to get the most beneficial stretch into our hip flexors.
