Standing Quadricep Stretch

A simple but effective stretch!

This is great for your quadriceps. You can do this holding onto a barre or wall with one hand for more support, or try using both hands on your foot for an extra stretch and balance challenge!

Bend your left knee and hold your left foot in your left hand (or both hands for the challenge). The MOST important thing is to keep your knees in line with one another and your spine straight and pelvis tucked under to get the best stretch! Often, we arch our backs or bring our bent knee forward of the standing knee, which compromises your form and the efficacy of the stretch. If you pull your knee slightly back and tuck your pelvis, you will feel an immediate change in the quality of your stretch!
