Extension of the Hip While Seated on the Heels.

33. Extension of the Hip While Seated on the Heels
Muscles involved: Quadriceps
Seating on top of your heels, preferably upon a padded surface, extend the hip allowing the trunk to fall backwards in a controlled fashion.
In this exercise, leaning the body backwards extends the quadriceps and because of the position that is adopted, the hip flexors also participate.
On the other hand, if the discomfort inherent in this position troubles you, feel free to skip it as the muscles worked may be stretched with other more comfortable and effective exercises.
