Figure 4 Stretch

“Figure-4” stretch: 

Maintaining flexibility as you externally rotate the hip is essential for being able to load and unload the hip without injury.  The Figure-4 stretch is performed by crossing the right ankle over the left knee.  Grab behind the left knee with both hands and pull it towards your chest.  You will feel a stretch deep in the right hip.  Perform 2-3 times daily, holding each stretch for 20-30 seconds.
