Day 37: The Quadriceps Stretch
by AccountingWEB on
The Quadriceps Stretch is a great way to reduce the tension and improve the flexibility in the front of the thigh. With this exercise, you will notice an immediate decrease in your overall tension level.
Step 1: Stand next to a chair or a wall, and place your hand on it for balance.
Step 2: Raise one foot backwards by bending your knee and grasping the foot with your free hand. Don't lean forward.
Step 3: Gently pull your leg back and press your foot against your buttock until you feel a stretch in the front part of your thigh.
Step 4: Hold this position for 30-45 seconds.
Step 5: Slowly release your hand from your foot and allow your foot to drop back to the floor.
Step 6: Repeat this stretch on the opposite leg.
