Figure 4 Stretch

Go figure! This is called a figure 4 stretch, because your legs make the shape of a 4. It’s a great stretch for your hips, glutes, and thighs!

Start sitting with both feet on the floor with legs about hip width apart. Cross your right ankle over your left knee, flexing the foot to protect the ankle joints. Scoot your butt in as close to your heel as you can while keeping your back as straight as possible. You can gently push your right knee forward to intensify the stretch!

You can also do this standing on a bent leg or laying on your back with your legs above your hips.
