Big Quad Stretch on Ball
Seems simple, be sure to add these tensional components to maximize efficacy of this stretch.
- Keep the abs engaged into the hip, gently squeeze the butt muscles of the stretching leg, you will feel a deeper more accurate stretch. Add these tensional elements slowly and smoothly, no jerking your body around.
- Knee does not cross the toes!
- For added depth, rotate the femur gently right to left no more than 5 degrees either way, it will feel like your knee cap is pivoting on the ground, so be sure to use a mat or a rolled up towel to add some cushion.
Each side hold for 1 minute, breathing slowly, deepen the stretch by driving hips forward, do not push, this stretch is good for everyone!
