Stretch your ankles and get your blood flowing in your lower body.
  • Lift your knee up as high as you can, and flex your ankle back as far as you can.
  • Extend your leg forward pivoting at the knee, Flex the ankle forward as far as possible.
  • Repeat a few times.

This one stretch will loosen up most of the leg. If you throw in a little side-to-side motion while doing this, you can loosen up the hip as well.
