This stretch will work on the hip flexor muscle group that can shorten from sitting too much.
You will need a chair for this stretch, preferably one without wheels. If your chair has wheels, make sure they are locked in place.
If you have a history of knee or low back pain, this may not be the right exercise for you. As with beginning any exercise program, it is recommended to consult with your physician, physical or occupational therapist to determine which exercises are best for you.
