Activity: Side-lying quad stretch

200-08

Summary:

Side-lying stretch for the quadriceps that can be biased more for the rectus femoris muscle if needed. This is potentially more effective than a standing stretch as you are in a more restful position.

Description:

  • laying on your side, hold onto your ankle, or onto a towel or belt that is around your ankle
  • keep your spine neutral, and your thigh parallel to the ground
  • pull gently back causing some knee flexion and hip extension (adding hip extension focuses stretch to rectus femoris)
  • activate abdominals gently to make sure your low back doesn’t arch
