    South of the armpits.

    For specific advice, try a few reps on google.

    "Hip Flexors" is a functional name for a number of muscles that flex the hips.
    Rectus Femoris flexes the hip and also extends the knee. So it is both a Hip Flexor and a Knee Extensor.

    ^^^What TLS said.

    Also, the most important hip flexors (psoas and iliacus) lie deep beneath the abs and serratus anterior, so you can't see them in that picture. Look them up.

    I use this pose to stretch my hip flexors. Is it good enough?

    Mate, that's more of a piriformis/glute stretch. you'll see in the picture her hips aren't extended at all. You need to extend the hip to stretch the hip flexor.

    Google "samson stretch" for a good stretch.

    Doing my anatomy study atm for my exam tomorrow so I hope i'm not gonna look like a fool here:

    The label of seratus anterior is actually pointing to the obliques when it should be up higher to the jagged "triangles" (serrated parts) just under the pecs/armpit which is the real seratus anterior.

    Tell me i'm right haha

    You are right and wrong. Your description of serratus anterior is good but on the image it is pointing to the correct position you just can not see it all due to the other musculature. It is not the best image.
