Quadriceps stretch

Quad stretch
Quad stretch


A  simple standing quadrcieps stretch.


•  standing on one leg hold onto your other ankle, or onto a towel or belt that is looped around your ankle.

•  keep your spine neutral (no excessive arch in your lower back).

•  gently pull your ankle up bending the knee (pushing hips forward creates a more focused stretch).

•  it is important to hold on to something with your other hand if you have difficulty balancing.

• hold stretch for a minimum of 20 seconds.

Note: you may also perform this stretch lying on your side as an alternative.
