Standing Quad Stretch

How to Perform this E-cise™

  1. Stand on one foot and bend the other leg back and place the top of the foot on the back of a chair or a block.
    • The height of the foot dictates the amount of stretch in the quadriceps muscles(thighs).
  2. Keep your hips and shoulders square to the wall.
    • Look down and be sure that your knees remain right beside of each other.
    • The key is to make sure that the down leg/hip is not jetting out to the side.
    • You must keep your hips level.
  3. Try to tilt your butt under(suck and tuck).
  4. Hold. If needed, hold onto something for balance.
