The iliopsoas, a muscle complex that contributes to hip flexion, plays a significant role in the speed of sprinting. Most of the research in the literature neglected this primary hip flexor, and this has been limiting our ability to enhance athlete’s sprint performance. The understanding of the biomechanical components of sprinting is necessary, and it is important to focus on this hip flexor as iliopsoas may have the greatest influence on sprint speed of any segmental body movement. Stretching of a shortened muscle can reduce the risk of injury during sports activity.

Dynamic Stretch for Iliopsoas
Stand near to a wall or other supporting object to stabilize the body during the stretch. Flex the hip and knee, bring the knee as close to the chest as possible while keeping the lower back straight. Then bring the hip into extension with an additional force exerted at the end of the hip extension. Perform this motion for 15 seconds and repeat the same procedure on the opposite leg. The trunk needs to be upright, and avoidance of internal and external rotation of the hip throughout the whole stretching exercises is necessary to prevent injury and to isolate the iliopsoas muscle.

Static Stretch for Iliopsoas
Start in the lunge position with the leg of the iliopsoas being stretched behind the body with the knee slightly bent. Slowly lowered the hips until you a moderate stretch is felt in the iliopsoas muscle. Maintain the stretch for 30 seconds. Or while in this position with the iliopsoas elongated, oscillated downwards for 15 seconds.
