We all know we need to stretch to stay mobile.
But how do you know which muscles to stretch?
I have clients that are too mobile in some areas, while they are really stiff in others.
Quads – front thigh
Quads – A Simple Test
Lie on your tummy, try to bring your heel to your bottom. If you can’t get it all the way in you need to stretch the muscles (quads) on the front of your thighs
Stretches to Try
Make sure you are warm.
You don’t need to bounce or pull at your leg to stretch effectively.
Use a strap, tie or towel to reach around your foot.
Hold the stretch for 30 seconds on each leg.
