Stretch Series: Quadriceps
Posted Sep 29 2009 10:25pm
Unless you are
you have to stretch.
And last time I checked they both were make-believe characters that don't exist, so technically EVERYONE needs to do some form of stretching.
Hopefully you've been following along with my Stretch Series and picking up some new moves to try pre and post-workout.
If you haven't been, WTF!
You can just click on the
in the right sidebar to catch up.
Here is this week stretch for your quadriceps...
Do This Stretch:
Bend your LEFT Knee
Hook your foot on the back of a bench, back of a chair, on the ledge counter, or hold with your hand
Draw the heel of your LEFT foot towards your backside, until you feel a stretch
Intensify This Stretch:
Tuck your hips under or round your lower back
Contract the glute on the same side as the leg you are stretching
Correct This Stretch:
Make sure your knee that is bent is pointing straight down to the floor
Do not arch your lower back as you try to raise your foot higher
Hold for at least 30 seconds on each leg
